BANNA 10K ROAD RACE & 5K FUN RUN: This ever growing event was once again a major success last Sunday with over 400 athletes, runners, joggers & walkers taking to the roads around Banna & Ardfert in what has now become a great & fun family morning out. We had competitors from all parts of Munster and beyond taking part in our fundraiser and we appreciate all the support and goodwill.  The good weather, the level course, road stewards, water station volunteers, sponsor Dan Horan Fruit & Veg., media, DJ, timers, Banna Sea Rescue Unit personnel, Red Cross & providers of all the equipment etc. combined to make the run the best attended yet. We must also give honourable credit to Dominic Dineen & Charles Slattery for their invaluable assistance again this year. The Banna 10k & 5k run is organised by St. Brendan’s Athletic Club in Ardfert and all money raised is used to fund the Club’s activities during the year. The organising committee wish to thank all of the above volunteers & the local householders and road users for their cooperation with traffic management and crowd control. 

Results: 10K Male: 1st Donal O Callaghan, 2nd Michael O Regan, 3rd Simon Mangan.
