With no Rathfarnham 5k in 2020 and 2021, you need to look at the highlights from the 2019 5k to understand how fast this course is. In 2019 13 completed the course in under 15.00 minutes, 30 finished under 16.00, 62 under 17.00, 111 under 18.00, 162 under 19.00 and 200 at 20.00 and under. With the first 4 ladies finishing under 17.00 and 10 ladies at 18.02 and under, this is truely one of the fastest 5ks in Ireland. In addition we had 424 under 25.00, 678 under 30.00 and 828 under 40.00 and several PBs were achieved. Photos of all who ran the Rathfarnham 5k 2019 are posted on the Rathfarnham WSAF AC Facebook site.
