Rathfarnham 5k 2022 (25th Sept)


The Rathfarnham 5k took place on Sunday morning 25th September where nearly 900 runners toed the line.  The first and final 1.2k are downhill and fast, the middle section along by Terenure College is flat and fast, and there is only one short 400m uphill section from Rathfarnham to Terenure, so this is one of the fastest 5k courses in the country and with a strong field of club runners, most can look forward to being dragged along to fast times. This was certainly the case for Euan Lagan who ran to an excellent ninth place in a swift 14 minutes 49 seconds, which he was delighted with, and Andrew Nevin also had an excellent race to finish just outside the top twenty in a fast 15:33, proving that that the Rathfarnham course is very quick.
