The Rita & Robbie 5k attracted not only a large crowd but some lovely brisk festive sunshine. Just over 400 runners, joggers and walkers attended this years fund raiser for Claremount stadium. Navan AC who contributed the organisation carried out a fantastic job. The main event started with an under 16's 2k race which added to the attraction. The 2k race consisted of 5 laps of the running track giving onlookers a great spectacle to watch.

This years race changed it' s name from the Robbie Byrne to the Rita & Robbie 5k. This was in memory of the late Rita Brady who was much loved by the local community. Rita was an integral part of Athletics not only in Navan but all over the county. She also contributed to supporting Claremount and Simonstown GAA club. 

The  event was very well supported by running clubs from all over the County of Meath and beyond.

The race itself was won by Tomas Moran of Dunshaughlin AC with Valdas Dopolskas 2nd and Bohermeen's Darragh Rennicks in 3rd spot.
