** Trivia ** - Ballycotton 10, 24th June 2001

20 Years ago last weekend. I'm getting old πŸ˜ƒ 

Foot and Mouth disease struck the country early in the year and the race was postponed for a few months.
Always run in March and penciled in for 11th that year.  It was unusual and very hot to run it in June.

763 finishers on the day and I do remember the medics were very busy as we were not used to distance runs in the heat.
πŸƒπŸƒ‍♂️

The mugs were made in advance but the t-shirts were amended to reflect the new date. Unique to have this collection.
☕️☕️

I do remember thinking that nothing like this will ever happen again to disrupt the whole country.

I am a very wise person. 🀩πŸ₯³
