Mark’s Blog (John Buckley 5K Results)

Last Tuesday the John Buckley 5K in association with the BHAA took place and with about 850 runners toeing the line it was a great success.

The evening was amazing which led to some quick times. The first mile was fast in 4.36 so the group of 4 was on for a good pace from the start.

At mile two I kept a good pace and got a slight lead on the group and held that till the end to finish in a time of 14.33. No records this year but after two marathons in the legs since last year I’m happy to be able to get close enough.

There was a great atmosphere after and good grub. It was a very successful night for John Buckley Sports and the BHAA and well done to all who competed. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the night and there were lots of PB’s!

I hope to race the 3K in the Cork City Sports on the 28th June before we head to the European Championships for the half marathon in July.
