Great Limerick Run 2014

 

great limerick run 2014Over 12,000 people took part in the Barrington’s Hospital Great Limerick Run. The number of participants this year is a record for the run, which boasted six different events in total and is celebrating its fifth staging in the city. Kenyan Lezan Kimutai won the marathon event in a time of two hours and twenty five minutes. Over 1,000 participants took part in the marathon event, 2,000 in the half marathon, plus over 100 relay teams while the bulk of participants were taking part in the six mile – or 10km – event, which began at Pery Square at 1.30pm, more than 6,000 in total. Participants came from all over the world, including the UK, US, Italy, Canada, France, Holland, Denmark, Luxembourg and Spain, plus a large contingent from Chicago.

Race director John Cleary tells me, “It is all about promoting Limerick, showing the positive side. Just to be part of it is what everyone wants,” he said. Some 75 companies also took part in the fittest company challenge in the race. Fifteen bands, from the Boherbouy Band to Leading Armies, with gospel, reggae and jazz on offer around the course, and competitors referenced the entertainment and particularly the support from cheering crowds as helping them over the line.
