Fantastic night, hats off one more time To Carrigtwohill AC. Well planned event, great atmosphere, plenty parking and well stewarded.. An all round well organised event.
I am not one to comment on the "spread" as this is NOT what running is about but it was very nice.
Well done again on another great event. Will be back next year.
