Results of the Banteer 5k road race - 22nd July 2012

The fine Irish Summer lasted a full two days before the wind and clouds returned yet again on Sunday! However, that didn't deter the 78 runners that took part in this low key 5k road race in Banteer. While the number may look low, they are actually 56% up on last year when just 50 runners took part.

The mens race was won by Cathal O'Donovan of St.Finbarr's AC in a time of 16:00. The first woman home was Carol Finn of Leevale AC in 19:40.

A flat course that had its challenges in a humid and breezy afternoon. Registering in the GAA grounds this year was a wise move which allowed everyone to utilize the walk track and sports field for the warm up. Overall a very well organised event and wouldn't be surprised if numbers increased next year.

I'm afraid a 5KM race on a Sunday at 1pm does not suit a lot of runners , as it takes up a large part of the day .!!!!

I agree with the last comment, I'd be more inclined to do it if it was at 11am.

I thought this was one of the best 5k road races so far this year. It was very well organised, the sportsfield in Banteer is a gem. Well done to Duhallow AC.looking foward to the 5k in Newmarket in December.
