The Sonia O' Sullivan 10 mile race was a real treat for runners in Sonia's home town of Cobh, Co. Cork. This was a stunning location for the event. This was the first year that Ballymore Cobh AC hosted the event and what an event too. This was a sell out many weeks before race day. Many of the runners attended to honor and celebrate Sonia's many famous victories and achievements through her running career. Some big named athletes such as Lizzie Lee and Mick Clohisey also attended to honor Sonia. over 1,000 took to the start line to join Sonia. The weather conditions were also fantastic as the summer like sunshine came to see Sonia.
