Dunna Dash 2020

Last Sunday 1st March  the 7th Dunna Dash 5km Family Fun Run & Walk  in aid of St.Leonard’s National School took place and on a beautiful sunny day.  We had a record number of entries with 412 participants starting the event. The first event of the day was the new Kiddies 1km Dash at 12:15 and that was a super event for the children from 3rd Class down.  Next up at 12:30 was the 5km and the first runner home was Danny Shanahan in a time of 17min 59sec.  Adele Walsh was the first female to cross the line for the fourth year in a row in a time of 19min 12 sec. First juvenile male home was Noah Gilmore in a time of 21min 22 sec and the first female juvenile was Molly Rice in 23min 49 sec. The first Parent and Primary School child to cross the line together went to Mary & Alfie Steed in 25min 16 sec. All juveniles who completed the course received a medal at the finish and to see the children’s happy faces as they crossed the line was worth everything.

A huge thank you to all the wonderful volunteers on the day without whom the race could not have been possible and to all who helped in anyway in making the race a success. Also to our main sponsors Derek McLoughlin of D McL Plastering, Abbey Interiors, Fallons Pharmacy, Goodwins Electricial Contractors, Sheridans Construction, AK Tiling, O’Sheas Pharmacy, Dr.O’Dea & Highway Safety. We also received a number of anonymous sponsorship for which we are very grateful also and to all those who generously donated all the spot prizes.
