Results of the Shanagarry 5 mile road race...Thurs 26th June 2014

A record 602 runners took part in this years Shanagarry 5 mile road race in East Cork, the second race of four in the ongoing Ballycotton Summer Series. Although this is just five ahead of the previous record of 597 set last year in 2013, what makes it remarkable is that almost 600 people took part in a 5k in Macroom at the same time.

The chart below shows the breakdown of numbers....

The mens race was won by James McCarthy of East Cork AC in a time of 24:53. It's worth noting that the last time that someone ran sub 5 minute miles for this race was back in 2005.

Another notable performance was that of Cathal O'Connell who set a new M50 course record when he ran 27:17. The previous M50 record was held by John Buckley who ran 27:37 back in 1996.
