Is there a bonus for a race-record?
Yes. There will be a bonus awarded if an overall race-record is set by a male or female athlete. The current race-records stand as follows:
Male race-record: 22m49s
Held jointly by Séamus Power (Kilmurray Ibrickane) 1998 and Josphat Boit (Clonliffe Harriers) 2009, albeit over different courses.
Female race-record: 26m01s
Rosemary Ryan (Bilboa AC) 2001
The above times must be improved on (and not just equalled) in order for a new race-record to be officially ratified.
