Congrats to all from Athenry AC who successfully competed on the day. We won the women's team prize while Jane Ann Meehan had a PB and was 5th finisher on what must be considered a very difficult course. The Garmin does not lie, see here. Mairead Sullivan & Marie Keary completed the women's team with a great run by Marie to receive her highest placing to date.
Results from the 49th running are attached.
Bernie Kelly and her crew in GCH celebrated 7 years of Fit4Life in our neighbouring club last evening (Thursday, 13 November) at Westside Library.
Here's to the next 7, with Bernie continuing to lead from the back ;-)!
Hard luck to Mary Kealy on her 4th place in the Masters Women!
Full results of both men's and women's league attached, as XLS.
After a week of torrential rain the race organisers were casting nervous glances at the forecast to see if waders would be the gear of choice for yesterday morning’s Athenry AC Fit4Life Charity 5k, but there was no need to worry as the morning dawned with some fantastically mild weather, perfect for racing.
Provisional results attached below.
Word has reached the AAC.com news desk of an incursion of Athenry AC athletes down into deepest West Cork and have taken away some valuable booty in the process.
Result from Connacht XC Day 1 @ Bushfield in Loughrea are attached. Congrats to all Athenry AC athletes who finished, let alone placed well, but especially Jane Ann Meehan who was second in the women's ace and Mary Kealy who had her first outing in Athenry AC colours there.
Conditions had much deteriorated from the Galways at the same location a month before. Colder; much wetter; much, much slippier.
The organisation was top class from the local club & county, from the logistics, to the clubhouse, to the man with the computer cranking out results ;-).
