Disappointing That 121 people never turned up on the day I'm sure there were many who would have liked to have taken part

All the Clonmel AC races are measured by Jones Counter so spot on. You should be aware of the limitations of GPS watches. They don't work under trees and they cut corners.

Mine was short also but think it was because the start gun caught me out, I've done it twice before in Clonmel and it was bang on. Boys running beside me beeped on every mile.

Can't stress enough how good this half is, pound for pound it's my favourite in the Munster region. It's not as fast as Charleville but for some reason I enjoy this more.

As per usual a fantastic run event by Clonmel AC. unreal value for €25, T-shirt, great medal (with Dr Pat on it), great goodie bag with stuff other than flyers and fantastic feed after.. could have done with more cakes, but then again i did have 3 cakes so any more and i would have to run the race a 2nd time!!
roll on next year.
