Results of the Kilworth Camp 5 mile road race - Fri 13th July 2012

A total of 188 runners turned out on Friday evening for the Kilworth Camp 5 mile road race, well up from the 113 of last year. This is only the second year of the particular event and was the 6th race of 11 in the ongoing Ballyhoura Active Series.

The mens race was won by David McCarthy of West Waterford AC. This was David's first race after coming back from an injury following the excellent indoor season he had in the US at the start of the year. In January, he won an indoor mile race in Boston in 3:55.75 and in February, he won a prestigious 3,000m race at the Armory in New York in 7:55.50. The US magazine Running Times had an interview with him back in March.

The womens race was won by Corinna Walsh of West Waterford AC in a time of 31:54. Corinna is a regular winner of the races in the Waterford area.

Lovely course. Tough at times but plenty of it was also slightly downhill. My garmin had the mile markers pretty much bang on and the line was 5.01 which sounds just right. Well done to all involved.

Some difference in the standard from last year where 29min won it.

Reversing the route from last year cetainly helped race times, i would think. Having a quiet, traffic-free course was really welcome too, as was the food ( of which there was plenty ) in the Glocca Maura. I will def come back for next year again. Great to see the numbers way up on last year too. Just wondering if the trend of increased "unattached" runners was continued ??
