Annual club Christmas run…24th Dec 2015

The club held its annual Christmas run on the 24th of December on what was a cold but sunny morning. As in previous years, the run tied in with Grellan McGrath’s run where he runs his age in miles on his birthday…which was 50 miles this time!

Proceedings got under way at 4am in Ballincollig with Damian Kenneally and Tim McCarthy joining Grellan for the first two hours. A relief crew joined him for his second loop and more joined up on the run in from Ballincollig to the Lee Rowing Club where the main run started at 9am.

The 4am crew…Damian, Tim & Grellan

Over the course of the morning, we had about 23 members out with 17 taking part in the main run at 9am.

Grellan’s time for the 50 miles was 7h 32m 57s which works out as an average 9:04 minute/mile pace.
