Results of the Cork BHAA 'Novartis' 5 km road race - Wed 5th Aug 2009 (Updated Thurs 6th 11pm)
They always seem to get nice weather for this race and so it turned out again last night with a nice mild summers evening. Somewhere in the region of 470 runners turned out for this 5 km road race, an increase of about 50 on last year's figure of 416.

Results........the full results are now available HERE.

1) Jorge Ruiz Villasante was out again with his camera and took another excellent series of photos. Here are a selection that I picked out.

In this shot, Jorge uses the natural dip in the road to capture almost all
of the 470 runners as they head towards the half-mile mark.

At first sight, perhaps not the nicest of photos? Yet, the BHAA are an inter-company series of road races and the race did take place in a largely industrial area so the photo puts the rest into context.

'Where's the start???'

'Oooooooo......that hill !!'

2 well known Cork runners after tackling something called an 'incline' ;o)
