Results of the Cloyne 5k road race - Thurs 9th Sept 2010

This 5 km road race in aid of Cystic Fibrosis attracted 280 runners on a dull and overcast evening in Cloyne in East Cork. Considering that this was a new race, that is an excellent number.

It also marked the end of the summer season as it was the last evening road race. From here on, it's back to races at the least for races in daylight anyway! ;o)

The full results are now available HERE. I have highlighted the women in the top 100 so that they're a bit easier to pick out.

We have a slideshow of photos from John O'Driscoll HERE . Perhaps the photos might suggest that it was darker than what it was in reality but there is no doubt that the evenings are closing in fast.

John also has a video clip on YouTube. This shows the runners as they approach the finishing line with a few hundred metres to go.
