Well done and a huge thank you to all who turned out for our race - you came in your hundreds, and exceeded our expectations - and for that we are truly grateful.

We must thank all our sponsors - especially Daniels Centra in Portarlington who were a tremendous support for us this year.

Last, and by no means least, a big thank you to all our members and their families and friends who assisted with the organising and smooth running of the race yesterday - this could not have been possible without your help.

A full set of results is available on the St. Michaels Facebook page.
