The 6th Annual Daniel Kingston Memorial 5km in Macroom

The sun was once again shining for the sixth annual Daniel Kingston memorial 5KM in Macroom on Wednesday 24th June. Hundreds of runners and walkers took to the streets of Macroom with a final count of 650 taking part this year.


The atmosphere was electric and there was a real sense of ‘community’ about the event. The winning time was from Rory O’Sullivan in a fine time of 16:11. Local people have shown immense support, either participating or volunteering, for this event since Daniel’s passing in 2009.


As with previous years, Cork ARC are delighted to be recipients of all surplus funds raised from this wonderful event.
