The club was busy from early morning as the cyclists made their way through registration for their 9am start.
It was WIlly Mulcahy(Cycling legend of Caherdavin Cycling club1949) who got them underway.
We had 2 cycles running in tandem with 50k and 75k cycles.
We would like to extend our thanks to Newmarket GAA club for allowing us to stop outside their club for a food stop before hitting the road again.
Meanwhile back in the club the walkers and runners were busy warming up compliments of Mr Motivator himself Richie Clifford who did a great job.
Once the walkers took off it was don to our 10k runners.
A strong field was on show with Great Limerick Run winner Martin Doody leading the field and he didnt disappoint coming home the winner after a battle with James Doran in a time of 32.50
The first female home was Carol Finn in 40.04.
A special commemerative medal was presented to all participants along with a tshirt.
We wish to thank all those who took part in our event, Blood Bike Mid west for their support, all the volunteers who did a magnificent job from stewarding, registration, burger cooking, kids entertainment and general set up.
Far too many wonderful volunteers to mention but you are all vital cogs in our wheel. Thanks again
We wish to thank all our sponsors especially Caherdavin Credit Union, Ivans of Caherdavin, Smithstown Light Engineering and Woodfield House Hotel , Gore Transport Signs plus
