Suzanne Ryan, Ester Lawlor, Clare Shield, Noreen Fitzsimons, Lian Brady, Jackie Kingston, Barry Mulvihill, Philip Wright backed up the team performances. A special congratulations to David Power who placed an excellent 8th overall. He was the only person heard afterwards complaining about how good the conditions were but we all know that he prefers and performs better in deep mud, freezing rain and howling gales of biblical proportions! Well done to everybody who competed. Pictures of all who ran today are in the Gallery. All the results are on the MyRunResults website.
