Results of the Cheetah Run in Fota Wildlife Park...Thurs 14th May 2015

There's no doubt about it but Fota Wildlife Park is such a unique spot for a race. It's just so unusual seeing people warming up for a race and running past Wallabies, Cheetahs, Eagles, Peacocks and Howler Monkeys to name just a few of the attractions.

In terms of conditions, it was dry and overcast. A bit of sunshine might have been nice but at least the rain held off.

Looking through the results, 60.6% of the field were women which is exceptionally high.

Remember, John Buckley Sports are offering 20% off if you bring your race number into their shop. Valid until the 28th of May.
