Some recent photos from the GR8KM road race in Mitchelstown, part of the Avondhu 3×3 series…
Friday night saw the 5th running of the annual Conna 5k Road race. Conditions were good on the night and we had a very close race with Brian Crowley (Watergrasshill AC) leading from the start and forging ahead on the last mile on to win the men’s race followed closely by Kealan O’Connor (Grange Fermoy AC) and John Murphy (Grange Fermoy AC) in 2nd and 3rd. Martina Kiely (St Finbarrs AC) had a very strong run winning the women’s race with Evelyn Cashman (Youghal AC) in 2nd and Ellen Hanley (Grange Fermoy AC) in 3rd. A big thank you to all the volunteers, our title sponsors Michael Feeney Builders & Polished Beauty Tallow and all of our other sponsors too. The full results are available here.
