Dublin Staff Relay

Jun 07, 2013

On the 23rd of May, 15 employees from Byrne Looby Partners joined together to form three teams to participate in the Dublin Staff Relay.

The 5km course took the “sculpted athletes” through a diverse route across the Phoenix Park which included two hill climbs.

A total of 2285 runners or 457 teams took part in the event. Teams were assembled from hospitals, secondary schools, colleges, solicitors; the list is extensive with some large multinational companies participating in the event. The three teams from BLP were well able to hold their own corner and nothing separated the three teams for the first couple of runners. However as the runners progressed the competition became fierce!

The three teams finished the 25km adventure in very respectable times.

The finishing results were as follows:

  1. Team C – 1hr 42min #165
  2. Team B – 1hr 50min #313
  3. Team A – 1hr 55min # 366

The winner of the event was Athlone Institute of Technology with a very respectable time of 1hr 14min. Well done to Mark O’ Neil who was the only wheelchair participant in the event. We’re looking forward to another run in the docklands later this month.
