Running alongside Santa and plenty of his elves, the atmosphere on the day was truly festive and senior member Rebecca Carolan gained a new PB with another strong run to cross the finish line in a time of 22:18, while son Harry, making his 5k debut, ran a great race to finish in a time of 25:37.

Clubmate Niamh Bergin, also running well, crossed the line at the 31-minute mark.
