Waterford...Results of the Ballymacarbry 5 - Fri 30 July 2010

On Friday evening in Ballymacarbry, 163 runners completed the Doocey's Bar Ballymacarbry 5, in almost ideal weather. This was the ninth race in the Ger Wyley Sports Summer Series 2010.

Registration was at the excellent Ballymacarbry Community Centre.
The first half of this race was on a side-road off the R671. At about half-way, you turned left, over a small narrow bridge, past a small cottage, and onto woodland trails, and a gentle climb. Just before 4 miles, we crossed another bridge and rejoined the road.
You'd have a good view from 3 to 4 miles, except that you'd be watching every step you make on the rough terrain!
Results and prize giving were at the Doocey's Bar, where we could also catch some highlights of the IAAF European Championships at Barcelona.

Pauline Lambe was the first lady home, in a time of 29:48, beating the previous course record set by Sinead Crotty, by two seconds!
