Tom Brennan 5k 2022 (1st Jan)


The annual Liffey Valley AC “Tom Brennan 5k” in the Phoenix Park on New Year’s Day attracted an impressive entry of over 640, though, perhaps due to the rapidly growing number of Covid cases, on the day just under 490 took part, which is still a very impressive number. The weather was very unseasonal, more like a lovely spring morning with temperatures hitting 14 degrees for the 12 noon start, though it was quite blustery. This was the first big race of the year and delighted to be part of the highly competitive event were three from Mullingar Harriers. Andrew Nevin got his 2022 season off to a very good start with an excellent 18th place finish in 16:16. Next in was Michelle O’Halloran in 21:46, finishing well up in her master age category, and the trio was completed by Gordon Ward who was pleased with his 23:47 time and also a strong finish in his master age category.
