Tralee Musical Society 5K 2015

A new running event on 2015 calendar was the inaugural fundraising 5K run for Tralee Musical Society on 18 January 2015.
This run with a musical theme was also the first event in Run The Kingdom Championships series which incorporates all events organised by Run The Kingdom in 2015. Very simple formula of allocating points based on finishing in top 10 with Men and Women categories. Nice initiative adding a bit of more competitiveness and long term focus although scoring in 5K gets you the same amount of points as scoring in half or full marathon. 

Route for this 5K was a loop from Tralee Bay Wetlands to Blennerville and back to Wetlands via Ballyard. Over 150 participants took part in this event, running, jogging and walking, some with very fancy costumes and outfits. 

St.Brendan's AC had good representation with some very noticeable results from Ursula Barrett (4th) and Ann McGlynn (9th) making top 10 in Women category. It was good to see Bernice O'Sullivan (9th in age category) getting another race under the belt. Cathy Quilter (4th in age category) & Pat Sheehy (1st in age category) also diverted from marathon training for a bit of speed work over 5K distance. Well done guys!
