5km Fun Run

Some 50 runners joined former Ireland and Leinster rugby star Shane Horgan and Irish amateur boxer Conor Ahern on the ALSAA running track for a warm-up session before the first event of the day, the 5km Fun Run.

After the ‘off’ the runners were joined by several children and some adult walkers, so we are not sure how many finished the full course. To some participants’ surprise, and for the record, the ‘5km’ run was actually 5.74km (3.57 miles), which may have contributed to the well spread out arrivals at the finishing line!

First to pass the flag was Mark Gough, while the first woman to cross the line was Siobhan McCarthy. Well done to them – and well done to everyone who participated.
