More sunshine greeted us on 11th June for the 135th running at St. Anne's. 307 runners joined us, including a great looking group from Forget the Gym, while the cameras of Near TV were down reporting on the event for a forthcoming feature on St. Anne's Park and the Rose Festival. Look out for that in late July. Carl Conroy and Siobhan Eviston made it a Raheny Shamrock-dominated event in terms of the first place finishes, but well done to all who took part - there were 59 new personal bests recorded on the day!
