Results of the Rising Sun 1 mile road race - Sun 16th May 2010

Just under 50 runners turned out for this charity 1 mile road race over a straight section of road near Ballinhassig.  The photo above shows the start line on a lovely summer evening waiting for the start.

By the way, the runner on the far right is Ned Ramsell of Midleton AC who was running in his 3rd road race of the day having run earlier in a 5 km race in Villerstown and a 5 km charity run in East Ferry near Midleton. Obviously, one wasn't enough! :o)

The full results are now available HERE

Close finish to the 2010 Rising Sun Straight Mile Race...

Race report by Denis Looney of Eagle AC

Rising Sun 1 mile race, Ballinhassig.

48 runners turned out for this race on a beautiful summers evening.  It’s a straight mile, with quarter miles marked on the road. You sign on at the finish and jog to the start. The starter drives off in his car in front of you from the start line and beeps the horn to set you off.  Being a 1 mile sprint it’s a case of going out fast and hanging on. 

To be honest you wouldn't notice any climbs or dips. However for the sake of filling out this Race Report, the first half mile is slightly downhill, then slightly uphill, and flat for the last half mile. Then you cross the finish line.

There were loads of spot prizes at the finish, it was like the Late Late Show with one for everyone in the audience. With all proceeds going to the Lavanagh Centre this was a charity race of a different kind.

I spotted Danny McCarthy at Villierstown too so Ned isn't the only one running multiple races!!!
