Results of the 'Emer Casey' 10 km road race in Youghal - Sun 23rd May 2010

Conditions for this 10 km race in East Cork were almost identical to last year with blue skies and sunshine all day. Despite the heat, there was still a big turnout for this charity event.

The mens race was won by Sandis Bralitis of West Waterford AC in a time of 31:08, a full 32 seconds clear of fellow club member Raivis Zakis.

The ladies race was won by Lizzie Lee of Leevale AC who was over a minute clear of her nearest rival.

The results for the first 300 finishers can be seen HERE

I ran this one yesterday. Boy was it hot! 23C. Great cause though, but I was disappointed that more 'mainstream runners' didn't do it - I had my fastest 10k time in several years.

Afterwards Prof. John O'Leary and his Emer Casey Research Fellows gave talks on the work that the proceeds of this race, along with other Emer Casey Foundation events, has funded.

I think it's great that I can race and, at the same time, support such a worth cause.

Btw, we're back in Youghal on Sunday July 11th for Martin Drake's 5k fun run in aid of Marymount Hospice - mark it in your calendar.

Sorry lads, they leafleted the runners on the finish of the Emer Casey yestarday and I'm sure that 4 miler is on the 18th ... I could be wrong but I'm sure it's the 18th as I was thinking of doing it and am busy on the 11th.

An update on the update...
I just got some info to confirm that it is 4 miles and it is on Sunday the 18th.

Sorry for the wrong distance AND date. Still, judging from the phone calls, emails I got, and the posts here, the word is out on this run.

Memo to self: must check flyer before posting in future.

I have to agree with John this was a great race.Very well organised and stewarded with plenty of water stations,great food after and lots of prizes.I too am surprized that more "mainstream runners" did not do it.I have done this race every year since it started and it is always the same.Anyone know why? Surely 10Km at 1.30 pm on a Sunday is not too much. It is a great cause and one can see exactly where the money is going.

V enjoyable race, nice course (PB 4me) & well organised but have t say that I & others commented on the volume of cars on the course. I found myself running around them on a couple of occasions especially through the main street around mile 3-5. It was quite distracting maybe they could close it to traffic 4 1 hour next year. i dont think an hour is asking too much. But on a whole I enjoyed it immensely.
I also thought there would be more unners it really is for a great cause!!!!
