Bob Heffernan 5K 2019
There was a great turnout of Bray Runners at the Bob Heffernan 5k on 21st May. Excellent times and some fantastic Pbs were recorded. We also took home a couple of prizes, in what is one of the most competitive 5ks around. Ian McGrath finished in 13th place overall and was 1st 0/45 in an excellent 15.58. A fine run also from Paul O'Brien, who ran 16.53. Paul Allen broke the 17mimute mark for the first time running a new Pb of 16.56.
