The De Care Dental Claremorris 5k took place on Thursday evening (July 4). It’s the 18th year that De Care have hosted a race.
The 5k one lap course is the same as that used for Mayo AC’s Summer Series.
Conditions were good though not quite as warm as last year’s race in middle of the hot summer spell. There was an excellent turnout of 134 runners and walkers, with numbers boosted by the Corporate challenge .
It was also a target race in the 2019 Mayo AC Club League with over 20 members competing. Points tables will be updated later.
Congratulations to the prizewinners and well done to all who took part.
The Corporate Challenge was won by CBE led by TJ McHugh (18:17). They were one of 16 teams who competed.
All proceeds from the race go to De Care’s Charity of the Year which is Claremorris Red Cross.
