Jingle Bells 5k Results

Well done to everyone who took part in the Jingle Bells 5k on Saturday – PBs and tired legs all round!!

It was the first road race and possibly the longest race many of our athletes (the sprints group!) have ever competed in and it was great to have everyone come out to give it a go and enjoy the run!

Results can be found here: https://www.popupraces.ie/race/jingle-bells-5k-2018/

Be sure to take note of your time, we will be aiming to beat it next year! 🎅🏼
