This years Cheetah Run 4 mile race in Fota Wildlife Park attracted a field of about 800 runners on the night. In terms of the weather, things couldn’t have gone any better with the park looking superb in the evening sunshine.
In the mens race a group of four broke away early on but in the sprint for the finish line, Colm Sheahan of Leevale AC just managed to stay ahead finishing in a time of 20:03 with fellow club member James Grufferty just one second behind.
In the womens race, Orla Drumm was the winner in a time of 22:53. Ann Marie Holland of St.Finbarr’s AC was second with 24:19 while our own Deirdre Nagle of Eagle AC finished third in 24:55.
