Results of the Tramore Valley Park 5k - Sat 26th Nov 2011

The first race in Cork City's newest park got off to a great start with almost 300 runners taking part. While the Tramore Valley Park still has that 'raw' look about it, a few more months of work and some spring growth should see a big improvement. It will most likely be open to the public sometime in 2012 and I would presume that road races there will be a regular feature in future years. As a course, it certainly isn't as flat or fast as say the Marina circuit but there are no huge drags either.

The winner of the mens race was Chris Harrington of Leevale AC in a time of 15:43. The womens race was won by Annette Quaid of Leevale AC in a time of 17:58

Brilliant race, nice undulating course. Great potential training place. Just floodlight it and roof it and we'll have a great place to train during the winter. Well at least some lights would be nice, give us some place to train on these dark winter nights.

Great race Saturday. Well done to all involved. Cant wait 'til they open it up to the public. We need more training areas like this in the city.
+1 on floodlights!

Great fast race, well done to all who organised and I hope we raised a significant amount for the hospice. The last link to the last photo gallery doesn't work??
