Category Results & Photos of the Cork BHAA 'ESB/Fota Island Hotel' 5 km road race - Sun 13th Mar 2011

There was a big turnout of just over 400 runners for this Cork BHAA 5 km road race near Carrigtwohill. This was the first time the race was run over this route and considering the numbers, it would seem to be more popular than the race route in Mahon which attracted 272 in 2010 and 288 in 2009.

The first man home was George Waugh in a time of 15:54 while the first registered man was Wieslaw Sosnowski. In the womens race, Emma Murphy was the first woman in 18:12 while the first registered woman was Sinead Ni Chonchuir.

Great course, quiet country roads with absolutely no traffic. A couple of minor hills but overall a very enjoyable and fast race.

Lovely route,great weather (does the sun always shine in Carrigtwohill?)hotel and grounds were a lovely backdrop.Small point could have done with water while waiting in the chute. Thks to all

You'll find in every race that they won't give out water until people have left the chute. On Sunday, the priority for the race organisers was to get the runners checked, through the chutes asap and then safely across the road to the water.

People could then gather there out of the harms way and wander back up to the hotel in their own time.

Have the BHAA left out the Temp runners in the results ?
