Kinnegad 5KM 2014
This is a photograph from the Kinnegad 5KM Road Race, Fun Run, and Walk held in Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath, Ireland on Wednesday 10th July 2013 at 20:00. The race is organised by Coralstown/Kinnegad GAA Club who also provide the facilities for Race HQ, parking, and after-race refreshments. This is the 5th running of this race and each year it has got better and better. The race is held on a fast and relatively flat course which provides opportunities for fast times and personal bests for all participants. The beautiful weather seen a large crowd gather on the mainstreet to cheer on finishers whilst locals also watched from their houses as the race passed. A wonderful atmosphere and a credit to the local community. Coralstown Kinnegad GAA club were the main organisers of the event. As mentioned above this is a fast flat course. The course is right handed. The course starts on the old N4 Sligo Road (goo.gl/maps/JWpnK) outside of SuperValue Kinnegad. Just before the 1KM mark the race turns right onto the Killucan road. There is a downhill stretch at the 1km mark where 500m later the course takes a right turn onto Boreen Bradach (a well known local walking route). The race stays with the boreen, which has a very good road surface, until about 800 meters to go where the race emerges into a housing estate. The boreen, which has grass growing up the middle in places, is very well sheltered from the elements and tonight it provided a nice cool shaded environment for participants. The final right turn is onto the main street for the finish (goo.gl/maps/es2Up) outside the newly re-opened Harrys of Kinnegad. A great spread of refreshments, served outdoors, were provided in the club house afterwards followed by the prize giving ceremony.

I ran in the race - but my photograph doesn't appear here in your Flickr set! What gives?
As mentioned above we take these photographs as a hobby and as a voluntary contribution to the running community in Ireland. Very often we have actually ran in the same race and then switched to photographer mode after we finished the race. Consequently, we feel that we have no obligations to capture a photograph of every participant in the race. However, we do try our very best to capture as many participants as possible. But this is sometimes not possible for a variety of reasons:
►You were hidden behind another participant as you passed our camera
►Weather or lighting conditions meant that we had some photographs with blurry content which we did not upload to our Flickr set
►There were too many people - some races attract thousands of participants and as amateur photographs we cannot hope to capture photographs of everyone
►We simply missed you - sorry about that - we did our best!
You can email us petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com to enquire if we have a photograph of you which didn't make the final Flickr selection for the race. But we cannot promise that there will be photograph there. As alternatives we advise you to contact the race organisers to enquire if there were (1) other photographs taking photographs at the race event or if (2) there were professional commercial sports photographers taking photographs which might have some photographs of you available for purchase. You might find some links for further information above.
Don't like your photograph here?
That's OK! We understand!
If, for any reason, you are not happy or comfortable with your picture appearing here in this photoset on Flickr then please email us at petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com and we will remove it as soon as possible. We give careful consideration to each photograph before uploading.
