Nah Ballyandreen (of the Beast!) has to be tougher I reckon. As usual the race was really well organised and went off without a hitch. The gold standard for everyone else. Big thanks to all involved.

Great turnout/great race
As per usual no fuss with start/finish - just go out and run.

All four races have their own challenges - I can't decide which is the most demanding but I found this one the toughest this year - possibly I was not in the best shape ever though last night.

Take yet another bow Ballycotton Running Promotions !

Another brillantly organised race, which must have been tough to organise withoutout the usual car parks - but I didn't notice a hitch.

I've run races all over Ireland and a few fuether afield, as a previous poster said: "the gold standard".
