Great race. First 3 miles are extremely fast. The last 2 are to say the least testing! It has everything. The Tea and Sambos after are possibly the best around. Thanks to all who made it a great outing. I'm just surprised more people don't run it.

I thought this was a fantastic race. The organisation was faultless. I love the new course and the local support created a special atmosphere. The food afterwards was plentiful and delicious. I hope this event gets the bigger numbers it richly deserves in the coming years.

i must have been at a different race,i found the whole experience excellent,mile 4 tough and 5 a mixed bag but with a medal for every finisher,top class food after,and the normal 3 positions for prizes,what more do some people want. as a well experienced runner once told me after a tough course we ran , you time each course on last years performance on the same course. ill be back next year. theres no pleasing some

Congratulations to everyone inolved in organising last nights Willie Neenan Memorial race in Millstreet. Great relatively flat new course.I love the lay out of the finish line area. This race is up there with the best of them. What a lovely spread of food in the hall afterwards. Great atmosphere. Looking forward to next year. Great pity it clashed with Courtmac 10k.

Well done and thank you to all those involved in organising last nights race. The course was very enjoyable with a good mix which you would expect in any 5 miler . There was great support throughout and plenty of stewards on hand . The post race refreshments were outstanding and a medal for each finisher was a nice touch . We will be back next year , Pat,Kieran,Donal Golden,Míle Buíochais
