GIVEN the huge amount of work that goes into running a point-to-point, it was disappointing for the organisers of last Sunday’s Kilworth & Araglen Harriers’ meeting at Ballyarthur that just 23 runners faced the starter in the official races all day, with only 12 of these being of concern to the judge.

The biggest field of the afternoon, seven, lined up for the concluding Mad Hatters’ race which was a fund-raiser for Cobh Rescue Horses.
