Results of the Carrigaline 5 mile road race...Sun 19th Feb 2017

The annual Carrigaline 5 mile road race was held on Sunday the 19th of February 2017 on what turned out to be a nice mild Spring morning with the temperature up around 12 deg C. The numbers were up 11% this year with 419 runners taking part, the 3rd highest ever for the event.

Back in 2012/2013, things were different in that there was usually only one main event per day on. Fast forward to 2017 and we have multiple events on over the weekend...a parkrun in Ballincolllig with 383 runners, a 4k in Cloyne with about 200 and a trail race in North Cork. Any race that can hold its numbers at the moment is doing well so any race that manages to increase its numbers is doing really well.
