Results of the Cork BHAA 'FMC' 4 Mile Road Race...Sun 24th Jan 2009
Despite the blues skies and winter sunshine, the temperature only hovered around 0 deg C for the start of this 4 mile road race. This resulted in some frosty spots out along the course but nothing too serious. The BHAA were taking no chances however and duly warned all runners before the start of the run that it was no longer a 'road race', it was a 'charity event' for Haiti and people should run it accordingly. Well, if it was a charity run then it certainly was the fastest 'charity run' that I was ever in!! Looking at the times, some people seem to have run faster than they normally do. Maybe we should have more of these 'charity runs'? ;o)

From what I hear, somewhere in the region of 410 runners took part which is probably a record number for this event. If this is anything to go by then can we expect 2010 to be another record year for race numbers?
