A fantastic morning for a run and a huge crowd turned out for the Captains Run. Great credit must go to Noel O'Regan for organising this and continuing with the tradition. Of course things would not be the same without Edmond's "Magic Bus" for the cuppa and rumour has it that Midleton Distillery want to buy the bottle of whiskey for its museum as its been at the race so long and never been used it has become a collectors item. All proceeds will go to Carrigtwohill SVP and the full amount will be announced shortly.
