The great race organisers and the super weather were contributing factors plus the course and distance this year which revered back to the 5k distance which it seems is the popular choice among runners presently all added to what turned out to be the largest number of participants in the 23 year history of the event, with just shy of 200 runners and another 80 walkers taking part, it was a real community effort by the organisers Glenbeg National School and they are to be congratulated on the effort they put in getting the local community out and about last Sunday.
