If You Weren't In You Couldn't Win...

A little belated on the update front but here's a list of the 'special' awards for those from the club who are gifted in other areas apart from speed.  The awards were presented at the club if your name is here but you didn't make it to the party, your gift has been thoughtfully recycled to another worthy recipient!

  1. Jas Lundon - The "God loves a trier" award, for most attempts at a sub-40min 10km since 2002 (special prize of nipple guards awarded on the night).

Record crowd at 10-year club run: Photos UPDATED

Athenry AC celebrated 10 years of the senior section of the club by heading out onto the streets for its 9am training run with a record crowd of over 70 of its members. The 9am run is an unbroken tradition, spanning back the entire 10 years. Even when Saturday 9am has fallen on Christmas Day a group of runners has departed from the church to pound the streets of Athenry.
