Results of the Ballinascarthy 10k road race...Fri 1st July 2011

A total of 215 runners turned out for this 10 km road race in Ballinascarthy in West Cork. This was the second year of this particular race and the numbers were up 43% on last year.

The winner of the mens race was George Waugh in a time of 33:18......and that was after racing in the 5k race in Macroom 24 hours earlier. Brian Hegarty of Leevale finished 2nd in a time of 34:37, just 5 seconds ahead of the 3rd placed finisher Kevin Wilmot of Bandon AC in 34:42 who in turn was just 2 seconds clear of the 4th finisher.

In the ladies race, the top 3 were well clear of the rest of the field. Carmel Crowley of Bandon AC won in a time of 38:18 with Sinead Ni Chonchuir of Eagle AC second in 39:13. Geraldine O'Shea of St.Finbarrs AC finished 3rd in 41:37 with a gap of almost 4 minutes to the 4th placed runner.

Tough enough 10k race, was a constant hill until 5k mark and the hard work was lost very quickly on a steep downhill after the water station, personally I would prefer if the course was reversed. The organisation was outstanding, great treat to get a goody bag and great selection of food and drink at the end.

The organisation was super again. Nothing left to chance...great goodie bag and great atmosphere afterwards as we all tucked into the generous spread of food as well as the yogurt, juice etc. I'll be back...

Just picked up the site and I also ran the circuit in Bal on what was another beautiful evening for the run as in 2010. The organization of the event was excellent and unlike similar 10K there were people out at every crossroads along the route which added immensely to the atmosphere. The refreshments and goodie bag at the end were very generous with all the locals involved and a great community spirit evident. See you all this year 2012
