The Spar Great Ireland Run is an elite race that attracts some of the best distance runners in the world, doubles as the national 10km championships and is also an event drawing thousands of fun runners to the Phoenix Park.

Now in its 13th year, today's race will cater for every type of runner, all trying to beat their personal bests and many will also compete for their counties in the event's unique 'All-Ireland County Challenge.'

As always, next Monday's Irish Independent will capture all the action and news with a pullout race supplement that will include photos and a complete list of all finishers and their times.
