Streets of Kilkenny 5k

This popular 5k road race took place in Kilkenny City on Holy Thursday March 28th, attracting a large entry of 874 athletes. The start is always an interesting one beside the entrance to Kilkenny Castle with the big wave of runners having to navigate the narrow main streets of Kilkenny over a 2 lap course with big support from the general public it can be a good recipe for a personal best. We had 2 athletes representing the club with Mossy Bracken having another top class run in 7th place overall amongst quality opposition in a very good time of 14mins & 52seconds, compatriot Matthew Ryan also ran a stormer finishing in 32nd place overall in a fine time of 15mins & 52 seconds, Well done lads.
