Killarney Half Marathon & 10k 2022 (6th Aug)


Vinny Connolly was in Killarney on holidays for a few days and decided to join over 900 others and run in the Killarney 10k on Saturday morning 6th August. In a great holiday atmosphere and in lovely warm sunshine, the route took the big field through fabulous landscaped terrain including Muckross Park and Gardens and up some challenging hills near the Torc waterfall. Vinny looked strong throughout, battling hard with local man Darragh O’Leary of Killarney Valley AC, but continuing his great form during 2022, Vinny took control in the closing stages to win with a comfortable gap in 33 minutes 33 seconds. Also running in the 10k, Caroline Mullen finished well up overall in 47 minutes 44 seconds, to place second in her master category. There was also a Half Marathon where among the huge field of nearly 900 runners, Raymond Smith finished in 2:09:34, followed closely by Martin Mullen in 2:10:24, with both expressing satisfaction with their runs.
