Results of the Cork BHAA 'FMC' Little Island 4 Mile Road Race - Sun 25th Jan 2009
A little bit of that Ballycotton /East Cork luck seemed to rub off on the Little Island race yesterday as the skies cleared just in time for the race. The morning earlier was awful with driving rain and high winds as the centre of a low pressure weather system passed over Kerry. At 11am for the race, the centre of the low passed over East Cork, the skies cleared, the winds dropped and the sun beamed down. Not long after the race, the centre of the low passed and the bad weather returned. Talk about lucky!!

Hi John.

I would just like to thank the Bhaa for highlighting the male over 35's section at the recent road race this was agreed on at the Bhaa Agm last December,even though there is no catergory prize's for this age group i now feel at least this age group can see how they are doing at Bhaa events and hopefully encourage them to better themselves in future race's from previous results.
