Results of the Run in the Dark in Cork...Wed 12th Nov 2014

Over 2,100 people turned out for this years Run in the Dark charity event in Cork City. Despite a quick shower before the start, it was mostly dry for the race. As might be expected from a lapped course, it get pretty congested at times especially for the faster runners lapping people.

In the 5k, the majority were clearly women while the bulk of the field in the 10k were men.

 These are the provisional winners...

Not for runners - should be called the walk in the dark.

Too many walkers and too crowded. It was more of a fun event that people could use to donate some money towards a worthwhile charity.

Many runners complain a lot about this race, if you're a serious runner I would recommend avoiding. Over half the field were walking, it's still quite narrow in places so I treated it almost like a fartlek. Sprint past a hundred till you almost come to a halt with 5 ppl walking abreast. From now on I'd only do the 5k and start towards the front.

It's a charity race and it's supposed to be fun!! I'm sure no-one was using this as a race to beat times. I was glad this year, I didn't hear - "Lead runner, move to the side". It annoyed me last year, but I thought that this years race was very well run and the slight change of course made it more straighter laps. Already signed up for next years race.

It's a different 10 k. Not your usual time trial. More interesting. Go really fast for about first third. Then slalom/fartlek for next two thirds. It is what it is. Different and a bit of craic. All for a good cause.
