Waterford......Results of the Ballinameela 5 - Fri 20 Aug 2010

There were in 84 finishers in the 2nd annual Ballinameela 5 Mile road race, held in on a glorious Autumn evening, in a quiet part of north-west Waterford.

This was mainly a fund-raiser for the local Ballinameela GAA club, who made a huge effort in getting out stewards at every road junction, and provided welcome refreshments at the end in the Community Centre.

There was a water station, at the junction just short of 3 miles, after which there were several sections where you were running straight into the setting-sun on the horizon. The last 50m and finish were on the GAA pitch itself.

The race had the same overall winners as 2009, however the initial course records set then, remain unbroken.
  • M: Sandis Bralitis, West Waterford AC 25:11 (2009: 24:53)
  • F: Corinna Walsh, West Waterford AC 31:10 (2009: 31:40)
The results are now online at the West Waterford AC site.

I've uploaded the route to MapMyRun.

Organized by West Waterford AC and Ballinameela GAA.
