The Blarney half marathon took place today in beautiful conditions. Nice and warm and probably too warm for a race of this distance but at least it wasn't raining. There was a big turnout of 551 athletes.
Grange-Fermoy AC had 5 competitors in today's race, Brian O'Connor, Brian Moriarty, Mary Sheehan, Joan Ennis and Clotilde Fitzgibbon.
