Recent results of races in Waterford...July & August 2015

Just catching up on some recent results. There have been three races in West Waterford over the last few weeks and the one common feature is that the numbers seem to be down on previous years. Perhaps a sign of too many races on the calendar?

Ballymacarbry 5 mile....This 5 mile race was held on Friday the 24th of July with 165 runners turning out. This was down slightly on the 175 of 2014 which was a record year.

Rás na Rinne...This race over roughly 5.5 miles on the Ring Peninsula on Fri 7th Aug had a field of 94 runners. This is down from the 111 of 2014 and is well down on the peak of 177 back in 2009. Looking through the results for races in Waterford over the Summer, it does seem as if the harder ones like Rás na Rinne and the Marine Climb were well down in numbers while the shorter easier ones fared a lot better. Maybe an ongoing trend?
