The fourth year of the Lee Strand Kingdom Come 10Miler & 5K road races, organised by An Riocht AC, were held on Sunday 11th May 2014 in Castleisland. In the 10 mile event there were 150 runners and in the 5K over 300 people. A well organised event by An Riocht AC with neither route too challenging but this year somehow less supported with the number of participants lower than last year.
St.Brendan's AC had runners in 10 mile distance, with Derek Griffin placing highest for the club, taking 4th spot overall (59:17) with William Griffin finishing in 1:17:29 (4th in M50). Great performance from Ann McGlynn - second in F50 category with time of 1:20:52. 
Ursula Barrett finished few seconds after Ann in 1:20:56 (17th Women) and Kirstie Nowak also doing new PB in 1:37:09.
