Something wrong with the timings there as the published time for me is 3 minutes out.

Really enjoyable evening though and a nice run.

It is most likely a mistake with your name or number. All of the results are not out by 3 minutes.

You should contact the organisers if you want to get it corrected.

My time was bang on, so most likely mix up with just that person. Thought it was good to have prizegiving and refreshements in hall in town this year, rather than in a pub like other years, great supply of food afterwards, stewarding was good this year, it's a tough stretch traffic-wise on the last mile but I thought it was well under control. Great to see a nice chunk raised for charity- well done to all concerned.

Only 21 runners less than last year to be fair. Considering there was a race. in the Ballycotton series on Thursday and Bantry on Saturday it was a good turnout. Well run event, ful marks to the organisers

The drop was 31 as opposed to 21 and last years race was also just after the Carrigtwohill race which attracted several hundred runners.

Bantry race is on Monday, not Saturday.
