This was the 8th Terry O’Gara Memorial 5k in honour of the great man, our former chairman and all round legend. It is always such a privilege to have his son Steve join us for this special occasion, to start the race and hand out the prizes in his own, inimitable style (always a highlight) and to see Terry’s grandchildren Shay and Isla run the junior race. He would be so proud of them.
This year we had a record 201 finishers, beating 182 from 2018. The weather was perfect and 28% of our runners got a new 5k pb! It is a cracking, fast course so please do recommend it to friends and fellow runners for next year.
