Tipperary...Results of the Moyne 5k & 10k - Mon 6th June 2016

The overall numbers for this years 5k & 10k road races organised by Moyne AC were down by 35% on last year. In total, there were 176 runners between the two races, down from 273 last year.

This can be broken down as 101 in the 10k (154 in 2015) and 75 in the 5k (119 last year). The weather was fine so that wasn't a factor for the drop. It just seems to follow a recent pattern where the race numbers are down. The obvious reason is that there are too many races on the calendar but perhaps as the economy picks up, people are finding it harder to find the time? The entry fee of €15 probably didn't help either.

Still though, 176 runners for two races in a rural area of N.Tipperary isn't a bad number.
