This race went off ten minutes earlier than the 10k. As we’ve said it’s an increasingly popular event with 231 finishers this year. After the familiar lap of the town it heads out towards Charlestown and then doubled back via Lover’s Lane – a testing 2k climb – and down the Mountain Road before wriggling through the church grounds to the finish on the Square.
Fintan Whelan (Sligo AC) was the winner in 19:07, with clubmate Aoife Kilgallon first woman in 19:51. Well done to our four Mayo AC runners: Phillip McGoldrick 24:08, Natasha Kelly 24:12, Karen Clancy 26:12, and Cliona Finn 30:12
