A few nice women running images I found:
Tom Byrne Memorial 5KM Road Race – Lucan – May 2014
Image by Peter Mooney
This is a photograph from the Lucan Harriers Athletic Club "Tom Byrne Memorial" 5KM Road Race and fun run which was held in Lucan, Co. Dublin, Ireland on Sunday 11th May 2014 at 11:00. The race invited runners, joggers and walkers of all levels including those training for the Women’s Mini Marathon, Parkrunners and Fit4Life Groups. The weekly PARKRUN which is held in Griffen (www.parkrun.ie/griffeen/) was cancelled this weekend to allow runners to take part in this race instead. The race started outside SuperValue Lucan. Passing by the Lucan Harriers Club House the race proceeded into Griffeen Park where the participants completed about 2.5KM of the course before returning back on the road to the finish on the Lucan Harriers track. Thankfully the unseasonally cold and wet weather didn’t dampen the atmosphere and over 200 people participated in the event. Well done again to all at Lucan Harriers AC for a superbly organised 5KM event. The race commemorates one of the founding members of Lucan Harriers AC – Tom Byrne.
We have an extensive set of photographs from today in the following Flickr Album: www.flickr.com/photos/peterm7/sets/72157644652669113/

The majority of this race is run within Griffeen Valley Park which is managed by South Dublin County Council. The entire Park consists of over 200 acres. Griffeen was developed during the 1980s and comprised of a series of public open spaces from around the Lucan area. The River Griffeen flows through the park as it flows to meet the River Liffey in Lucan Village.

We use the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License for all our photographs here in this photograph set. What does this mean in reality?
The explaination is very simple.

This usually just mean putting a link to our photographs somewhere on your website, blog, or Facebook where other people can see it.

I ran in the race – but my photograph doesn’t appear here in your Flickr set! What gives?
As mentioned above we take these photographs as a hobby and as a voluntary contribution to the running community in Ireland. Very often we have actually ran in the same race and then switched to photographer mode after we finished the race. Consequently, we feel that we have no obligations to capture a photograph of every participant in the race. However, we do try our very best to capture as many participants as possible. But this is sometimes not possible for a variety of reasons:
►You were hidden behind another participant as you passed our camera
►Weather or lighting conditions meant that we had some photographs with blurry content which we did not upload to our Flickr set
►There were too many people – some races attract thousands of participants and as amateur photographs we cannot hope to capture photographs of everyone
►We simply missed you – sorry about that – we did our best!
You can email us petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com to enquire if we have a photograph of you which didn’t make the final Flickr selection for the race. But we cannot promise that there will be photograph there. As alternatives we advise you to contact the race organisers to enquire if there were (1) other photographs taking photographs at the race event or if (2) there were professional commercial sports photographers taking photographs which might have some photographs of you available for purchase. You might find some links for further information above.
Don’t like your photograph here?
That’s OK! We understand!
If, for any reason, you are not happy or comfortable with your picture appearing here in this photoset on Flickr then please email us at petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com and we will remove it as soon as possible. We give careful consideration to each photograph before uploading.
