Yet another runaway success

Frank Greally

A thousand walkers, joggers and runners took to the streets in Clonmel for the Join SPAR and Ray for 5k – the second in a week-long series of mass-participation events led by Today FM presenter Ray D'Arcy.

"The event was superbly organised by Clonmel Athletic Club and Athletics Ireland," said D'Arcy .

"There was a terrific atmosphere and encouragement for all the participants, which made for a special day."

The run was started by model and Clonmel native Roz Purcell and Tipperary hurling goalkeeper Brendan Cummins.

The lunchtime run started at the Town Hall and finished under the West Gate – a historic landmark in the town.

"The people of Clonmel really got behind this event and it was a brilliant occasion," said Niall O'Sullivan of Clonmel AC.
