Grant Thornton 5k
Grant Thornton Virtual GT5K Results
Thank you to everyone who took on the Grant Thornton Virtual GT5K Challenge over the last three days. We had some fantastic times submitted and everyone who entered has played their part in helping to raise much needed funds for the chosen charities.
It was expected that the time of 14.20 set by Jake O'Regan (Arrotek Medical) on Friday would be hard to beat and that proved to be the case. The 14.20 set by Jake would have been enough to take the honours at any of the 2019 GT5K events in Dublin, Cork, Belfast, or Galway. Jake's impressive time was enough to hold off Steven McAlary (Translink) and Joseph O'Donoghue (Grant Thornton) who finished in second and third place respectively.
Kim Doyle (Grant Thornton) also held onto top spot over the weekend with her super time of 19.25 ensuring bragging for 2020. Caoimhe McCrossan (CFO Services) was 11 seconds back in second place with her excellent time of 19.36. Jussalete Till Costello rounded off the top three places with her time of 21 minutes flat.
Some familiar faces managed to take the honours in the team standings with David O'Shea and his nTrai colleagues posting a combined time of 1:19:20 to finish ahead of teams from Bank of Ireland and New Ireland Assurance who both have a track record in making the podium. nTrai would usually be at the GT5K in a working capacity so it was great to see them and so many other companies offer their support to the 2020 virtual edition.
A big thank you once again to everyone who laced up their runners and supported the Grant Thornton Virtual GT5K over the last three days. We hope to see you all back at the GT5K events in 2021.
See you all next year!
