There were three events, for children, women, and finally men. A number of people turned up in costumes, and the event was very inclusive with people walking dogs, pushing wheelchairs and prams, and taking babies with them. As is often the case, the women's event had by far the most participants.
Janine Stones won the women's event, something she also did in 2014 as well as at various other years in the past.
It's a credit to the organising committee and the stewards that made this possible that the run went without a hitch and was well signposted and supplied with water and encouragement along the route. The atmosphere was friendly and fun, which is one of the reasons the Run For Life is such a popular fixture on Louth's sporting calendar.
