Causeway Macra 5K - November 2014

For the second time this year Causeway Macra organised a 5K Fun Run. This time the route was changed and proceeded in reverse direction from the same event in April.
Conditions were good for the run and even rain stopped for a few hours to give the runners, joggers and walkers a chance to spend an active Sunday afternoon.
There was a good turn out of runners and walkers and with a very reasonable entry fee of just €5, it shows that these types of low entry/low key fun runs have a place in running calendar.
St.Brendan's AC was well represented in this local fun run and dominated top places in both Men and Women categories:
Trevor Leen (1st overall), Artur Nowak (3rd overall), Tom Scanlon (4th overall), Tommy Redmond (6th overall).

Ursula Barrett (1st Woman), Mags Hussey (3rd Woman).

We also had Kirstie Nowak, Brian Lucid, Eileen Leen, Catherine Burke, Noreen Leen, Bernice O'Sullivan, Joan Reil, Eimear O'Sullivan, Katie Hussey & Daisy Nowak taking part and collecting finishers medal.

Overall a well run event with low entry fee, finishers medals and souvenir t-shirt for all participants. Well done to all club members who finished this event with a special mention to Ursula Barrett for bouncing back in style just 2 weeks after tough run in Dublin City Marathon!

As this was a Fun Run there are no official times or places. We have a few pictures on our Facebook page HERE.
