Coverage of the Great Ireland Run in Dublin on RTE Player...

Back on the 15th of April 2012, the Spar Great Ireland Run was held in the Phoenix Park in Dublin. Among a host of elite national and international runners, the star of the show for the 10k race was Kenenisa Bekele from Ethiopia, the World and Olympic record holder for both the 5000 metres and 10,000 metres. He is the reigning Olympic champion in both events and also won the 2004 Olympic title over 10,000 m.

For anyone that didn't see it, RTE still have the race on their Player service. The programme is 91 mins long. The elite womens race starts ~15:00 and the elite men and the masses start ~34:00. Some 11,000 people took part in the event. The RTE Player can be found HERE until Sunday, the 6th of May.
