Adamstown Community College hosted the now annual 5k/10k race around the new centre of Adamstown and now the Adamstown link road to raise money for its African projects. It was a very bright day but freezing cold and there was a very strong wind as you headed away from Adamstown down the link road but it was really well organised and a very enjoyable morning.

Next across the finish line and tenth overall was Fionnán Uibh Eachach in 21.25 and he was followed by Jim Dwyer in 30.36 and Edel Fogarty in 33.52.
