Despite the forecast for fine weather, it seems as if the weather front arrived a few hours early on Sunday. After a damp morning, it cleared up later and was dry for most of the race. This was the 26th year of this particular race and once again, it was a success with over 300 runners taking part.

One of the features of the Carrigaline 5 mile road race every year is that a percentage of the entry fee should go towards organisations in the community where the event is held. With just over 300 people taking part in the race last Sunday, a total of €650 was raised…€325 going to Foróige, a local youth club and €325 going to Carrigaline Meals on Wheels.
