Clare...Results of the Pakie Ryan Memorial Run 10k & 10 mile - Sat 19th Mar 2016

 The Pakie Ryan Memorial takes place every year in Newmarket on Fergus, Co.Clare and raises funds for local charities. There are multiple events taking part including walks, cycling and a 10k and 10 mile road race.

The numbers in the two road races were down this year by quite an amount. This was most likely due to the commercial Wild Atlantic Run 10k and half-marathon in Loop Head.

The numbers in the 10k dropped by 35% and the 10 mile by 45%. I first thought it might be just some walkers weren't included in the results but that's not the case. Last year, 382 runners broke the hour mark in the 10k and this year, it was 282. In the 10 mile, 122 ran sub 90 mins last year and it was 67 this year.
