Results of the Shanagarry 5 mile road race - Thurs 28th June 2012

A total of 485 runners turned out for the Shangarry 5 mile road race on Thursday, the 28th of June 2012. That's down a bit on the record turnout last year of 512 but that may well be explained by the wet weather and the fact that the semi-final of the European Football Championships between Germany and Italy was on the television. In the end, it was dry for most of the race with just some pools of water on the road. (2007 = 279, 2008 = 281, 2009 = 471, 2010 = 503 and 2011 = 512)

The winner of the mens race was Tim Twomey of Leevale AC while the first woman home was Helen Leonard of Rathfarnham-WSAF AC.

First 20 women get the t-shirt. The 20th overall woman last year finished in average of 37:03 per race.
