Results & photos of the Shanagarry 5km road race...Thurs 4th Aug 2016

The annual Shanagarry 5k is one of the oldest 5km races in Cork and this year was its 30th edition. On what was a lovely dry sunny evening, the race attracted a field of 80 runners, up 35% on the 59 of 2015.

This is just a personal opinion but this low key 5k race for me is one of the best on the calendar. It's just a well run race on a reasonably fast 5k course.
