Tipperary...Results of the Ballynonty 10 mile road race - Sun 27th July 2014

A nice crowd of 86 runners turned out for this years Ballynonty 10 mile road race, well up from the 44 of last year. As races go, this one is a bit of a gem in that it is a good quality 10 mile race and it only costs €10 to enter.

Conditions for the race were warm with some hazy sunshine present for most of it. This made things a bit difficult but there were plenty of water stations out along the course to make up for it.

These were the top 3 men and women
