TuamAC had great results from Kinvara and Belfast over the weekend. Jean Coleman was 2nd in her category in the Kinvara Roack and Road half marathon on Saturday. Aidan Doyle also represented TuamAC in the same event and ran a personal best time for the half marathon distance. This was a great achievement for both considering the strong winds and freezing cold rain that was prevalent across The Burren on Saturday. Also in action on Saturday was Brendan Monaghan. Brendan travelled to the north of Ireland where he won the Falls Road 5k in Belfast. Well done to all athletes. ** Please note that the online registration for this year’s 5k series will be opening on Friday evening 11/3 at 8pm. This normally sells out within minutes of opening.
