Really enjoyed Friday's 5 miler! Lovely scenery along the way, great organisation, and lots of cakes to replenish energy stores afterwards. Thank-you East Ferry Rowing Club.

First time doing this race (has this run slipped under the radar in recent years - wasn't aware of it till I saw it advertised on here ). What a gem of a race - where else can you run a 5mile race in Cork with the sea beside you for virtually the full 5 miles. And did anyone else get the divine smell of food wafting from the pub at about the 2 mile mark ?!!! Great evening, well organised. Thanks to all.
