Another hugely successful evening at our 6th consecutive 5 Mile Stride. We really appreciate everyone supporting us despite the last minute change of venue, and we’re delighted with the positive response of the new course and venue, with lots of PBs reported.
There was a highly competitive field, attracting some well known names to our event for the 1st time, and we also had our highest number of registrations to date.
Peter Lynch of Kilkenny City Harriers was 1st home in a blistering pace of 25 mins 5.
Sharon Cleere was 1st Lady home in an equally impressive time of 30 mins 38.
A fantastic evening, lots of support, lots of celebrations, and all done in true club spirit, with everyone playing a part in making it a success. A major thanks to Camross Hall Committee and the local residents in accommodating us at very short notice.
Thrilled to see SBR (Sliabh Buidhe Rovers AC) take home the Seamus Burke Memorial Cup to Ferns for the 1st time. There was plenty of celebrating in Rochfords Pub across the road afterwards!
