On Sunday 26th July a new race on the calendar the Bettystown 5mile was held. First home was David Rooney, Raheny Shamrocks, in an excellent time of 25.19.

This was a very well organised event, good course, huge amount of prizes (1 to 10 ind, 1st and 2nd in all Cat plus 1st and 2nd teams) and great food. A race well worth supporting and hopefully next year the weather will be a little bit more kind than this year.
