Heart of Allihies 5 Mile Run

Heart of Allihies 5 Mile Run was a great success with about 120 runners of all ages running walking or crawling around the fairly tough five mile course. Although it was a fairly tough course the scenery is amazing and that more than makes up for the difficulty This will go on to being a yearly event. Thanks to all who came.
