Results & Photos of the Newmarket 5k - Sun 11th Dec 2022

Evan Byrne wins the 2022 Newmarket 5k in a time of 14m 28s 

This was one of the coldest editions of the Newmarket 5k road race in recent times with the temperature hovering just above above 0 deg C. Despite getting a good entry, it seems that some runners decided not to travel on the day probably due to a fear of icy roads.

I was certainly expecting the roads around Newmarket in NW Cork to be a lot worse than Cork City but the opposite seemed to be the case. The race course was actually perfect for the event and the 5k went off without any issues.

A total of 365 runners crossed the finish line which is down 14% on the 424 of 2021 but up 8% on the 337 of 2019.

A total of 174 runners went under 20 minutes which was 48% of the field. It's interesting to note that 35% of the field went sub 20 in 2019 and this increased to 45% in 2021.
