Beaufort 10K/5K 2016

1 January 2016 - Beaufort 10K & 5K

First road race of  2016 took place in Beaufort, organised by Star of The Laune AC. This annual event was  expanded this year to include 5K option and another novelty was that the 10K route was run in the opposite direction to accommodate 5K and to reduce traffic on route.
In good Kerry tradition, it was cold and "not dry" at the start. Due to a technical issue with timing equipment, start was delayed by 30min but once the race started rain took back stage to wind, very strong in some places. 
There was a very good turn out despite the poor weather conditions and the after race refreshments were very much appreciated and gave everyone a good chance to chat and dry out after the "treacherous conditions".
The 5K option meant that a lot of younger participants came along to take part. 

St.Brendan's AC had good presence with all our male members decided on the longer, 10K route and all females preferred the shorter, 5K distance. 
10K: Artur Nowak, Paudie Dineen, David Butler, Pat Sheehy
5K: Shannon Quill, Mags Hussey, Daisy Nowak, Tina Curtin, Lilly Nowak, Cathy Quilter, Kirstie Nowak, Yvonne Quill
