Results of the Carrigaline 5 Mile Road Race...Sun 20th Feb 2011

A record 291 runners turned out for this 5 mile road race in Carrigaline just to the south of Cork City in what were windy but dry conditions.

Sean McGrath of East Cork AC won the mens race in a time of 25:21 with a comfortable cushion of just over 90 seconds to the 2nd man home.

The ladies race was won by Lizzie Lee of Leevale AC in a time of 28:40, over 3 minutes ahead of her nearest rival. Lizzie is obviously back in flying form again after picking up an injury over the winter months.

A challenging but very enjoyable race, and a great turnout aswell. I've done this course a couple of times and the climb in mile 3 doesn't get any easier! The results were also available really quickly. Well done everyone.
