Results of the Ballyandreen 5 Mile Road Race - Thurs 22nd May 2008
The first race in the Ballycotton 5 mile Summer series kicked off last night in Ballyandreen in East Cork on what was a lovely Summers evening. What a difference 24 hours makes because on the previous evening, the weather was awful, cold and wet. Yet again, Ballycotton Running Promotions had everything organised to perfection, even the weather! How do they do it???

As for the race, they managed to attract a record crowd of 279 runners which is some going for a race that has been going for 25 plus years. The previous record was set 25 years ago back in 1983 when there were 271 finishers. Back then, 84 runners broke the 30 minute mark. Last night, just 20 runners got under. Reasons for the change??? People have less time?...More people just running to stay fit rather than to compete in races?...More sports to choose from?

"First Race since the Mallow 10m due to injury, what a great feeling to be back....Aiden Hickey"
"What a beautiful evening it turned out to be. It was lovely to cross the finish and head straight down to the beach and soothe the legs in the sea. Then up for a cup of tea afterwards. A really enjoyable evening, except for the hill at 3.5!!!!......Simon"
"Ahhh...the 'Beast of Ballyandreen' at 3.5!!! I thought people might 'enjoy' that one ;o) .....John Desmond"
"Great finish! You feel like your hang gliding coming down the hill for the last quarter mile......Phil"
"Hi John, with regard to the the slow times, it's the bloody women, they are dragging all the fast runners around shopping with them to carry their bloody bags!! ;o) Thats my story and I'm sticking to it. Good course last night. Last mile was great, a very fast mile for me. What can I say about this race? Well, it had it's up and downs ha ha.........John Dunphy, Rising Sun AC."

First Race since the Mallow 10m due to injury, what a great feeling to be back.

What a beautiful evening it turned out to be. It was lovely to cross the finish and head straight down to the beach and soothe the legs in the sea. Then up for a cup of tea afterwards. A really enjoyable evening, except for the hill at 3.5!!!!

Great finish! You feel like your hang gliding coming down the hill for the last quarter mile
