Results of the Karen Fenton Memorial 5k race... Sun 15th Apr 2018

A whopping 694 runners turned out for the inaugural Karen Fenton Memorial 5k in Ballinora on Sunday the 15th of April 2018. After putting up the race notice a few weeks back, I could see that the post was getting a lot of hits but little did I suspect that the turnout would be so great.

Race numbers at the moment seem to be highly volatile with the recent Emer Casey 5k in Youghal dropping a massive 28%..the lowest number since 2010, the BHAA Gas Networks race down to its second lowest ever and now this one way up at almost 700 runners. One thing is for sure, you certainly can't take the numbers turning up at a race for granted.
