Gerry BradyOct 4 2009, 1:58pmA provisional race report has been posted. Congratulations to all the runners, managers and supporters on fine performances and especially to the athletes making their debut at this level. Hopefully it will be a building ground for the Youths, Europeans and Worlds races in 2010.
