6th Annual Cheetah Run a great success

The 6th Annual Cheetah Run 4 mile road race took place last night and it was a great success.

Having been sold out in under an hour 2 weeks ago the atmosphere was fantastic last night with 789 of the 900 registered completing the race.A big thanks to the organisers Eagle AC for once again organising a great race and also to sponsors Laya Healthcare, John Buckley Sports, Brooks Running and Deep Riverrock.

Congratulations to Colm Sheahan (pictured below with the other men who finished in top 5) who was the 1st man home in 20:01 and also to Orla Drumm who was the first lady home in 22:53.

Once again our animals were one of the main features in the race with the zebras running around with the back runners as seen in the video below. Maybe they will make Good Morning America, Huffington Post and ITN News like they did last year.
