BANNA 10K Road Race & 5K Fun Run 2015 - results

St. Brendan’s AC had another successful turnout for their sixth annual Banna 10km and 5km fun run.  The rain held off but the wind proved to be quite blustery along the route.  However numbers were very consistent on previous years with many enjoying the flat route and scenic views of Banna and the surrounding Ardfert area.  The first man home and winner of the Tom O’ Riordan perpetual trophy was Donal O’ Callaghan Ríocht AC, this was Donal’s second year in a row winning the 10km section of the race.  However he faced stiff competition from second place runner Michael O’ Regan, Tralee.  In the women’s 10km last year’s second place female Ann Marie Holland from Cork came home in first position with local girl Anna-Meria Costelloe, Kilmoyley coming home in second place.  In the men’s 5km Cillian Tierney came home in a blistering 17.06 with his sister Ciara taking second in the women’s with Sasha Brent winning that 5km just ahead of her.  Thank you to the many volunteers along the route and to both Louis Byrne and Total Produce.  It was great to see so much local support for the race including club president Patrick O’ Riordan & his brother Willie who came from Cork to support it.
