Results of the Liscarroll 10k road race...Fri 21st Aug 2015

While I was looking up the results of this race for 2014, I noticed that the numbers had dropped from 131 in 2013 to 85 last year. Looking through the comments, it seemed most thought is was due to it being just one day after the Ballycotton 5 mile race and just two days before an open cross country race in Newcastlewest in Limerick.

This year, the Liscarroll 10k was on a week ahead of last year and as dates go, it was reasonably uncrowded. A total of 97 runners turned out which is an improvement of 12 runners on last year but still well down on the 131 of 2013.

The winner of this years race was Michael Harty of East Cork AC who is having a cracking year. Not only did Michael win the race but he also set a new course record of 31:12 in the process. The previous record of 31:53 was set by Michael Herlihy in 2011.
