Results of the Cork BHAA 'Army/Navy' 5 Mile Road Race - Wed 20th Aug 2008
Despite the fact that we are in the middle of the holiday season, 277 runners still turned out for this 5 mile road race in the Naval base in Ringaskiddy. That's a increase of about 30% on last years figure which is a big jump.
One unusual feature of this race was that there was a dead heat for the finish with both Sean McGrath and Colin Meritt crossing the line together. What is amazing is that after 26 minutes of running, they should finish so close that the BHAA officials on hand could not decide who had won it. This was I presume, a first for a BHAA race.
