Clare athlete Jake O'Regan (St John's AC) won the Bundoran 10 event in a new course record time of 48 minutes, 40 seconds as more than 800 people participated in the event. This was the second consecutive week that he has broken a course record. Last week he broke the Adare 10k record in Limerick.

With bright sunshine, no breeze and temperatures of around ten degrees conditions were ideal and the event was a major success.

Eimear Gormley of Letterkenny AC was the first female over the line, in 1:04.52, followed by Cora Regan, Drumshanbo AC, in 1:05.26 while Donna Evans, Clones AC, was third in 1:05.39
