         Over 1,300 runners, joggers and walkers took part in Bay Run ’10 amongst them many well-known celebrities including internationally renowned long distance runner Catherina McKiernan. Catherina has been the official starter of the Bay Run in recent years and will again send the runners off on their 13km race from Glengarriff to Bantry.
            Registration at www.bayrun.ie costs €50 – though this may be ‘expensive’ at this time remember that it's the local division of “Special Olympics” that will be the main beneficiary.
