Results of the Shannon Airport 5km & 7.5km Runway run...Fri 17th June 2016
The annual Shannon Airport Runway Run in Co.Clare was held on Friday night the 17th of June 2016. While the headline in the Clare Herald stated '2,500 take part in midnight runway event', the actual results show a very different story. There were two races with 1209 taking part in the main 5km event with another 463 in the 7.5km run. This gives a combined total of 1672 runners and walker which is still a pretty big number for an event in Co.Clare but nowhere near what the newspaper claimed. In 2015, 1620 took part.
Note that the times are approx as the course may have been a bit short.
