Results & Photos of the Cork BHAA Novartis 5k road race... Wed 1st Aug 2018

There was a big drop in numbers for this years Novartis 5k race in Ringaskiddy with 312 runners taking part, down 27% on last year. Considering that it was a damp wet evening, many people probably opted to stay at home.

As can be seen from the chart below, the last time the numbers were lower than this was way back in 2002!  It's probably likely that the numbers will be up again next year if the weather is kinder but I suspect that the days of getting 600 like back in 2014 are well behind us.
