The 14th annual Athenry AC 5KM Handicap Championship took place last Tuesday, 30 August 2016 around the old 5KM Series loop in Athenry: the figure of 8 starting close to the level crossing and finishing outside the pitch in Raheen.
Forty five hardy souls toed the line, ably marshalled by Race Director, Brendan Galvin. There were club marshalls at all the junctions, including a tight spot just after the Raheen Woods where there is building works on-going. The finish line was very busy too.
2506 athletes completed this year's Streets of Galway 8km. The iconic club photo usually taken on the steps of Jury's Hotel was organised by James Lundon. There was a smaller representation from the club this year as the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon was on the following morning. Race conditions were described as blustery, but for once, we saw the wind favour athletes as they ran along the prom in the final stage of the race. There were a few reported PB's and possibly more! We saw an impressive finish to the ladies race with only 18 seconds separating the 3 podium places.
National Half Marathon / 07 Aug 2016 / 08:30 a.m.
Although most of us relish the challenge of a tough race, the 4:30 a.m alarm call was greeted with little enthusiasm. By the time the porridge was consumed and we had hit the M6 the early start was quickly forgotten as the focus turned to the task in hand.
We were greeted by the following on the DCM web site this afternoon:
"ENTRY IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE SSE AIRTRICITY DUBLIN MARATHON ON SUNDAY 30TH OCTOBER WAVE 1 @9:00, WAVE 2 @9:10, WAVE 3 @9:20, WAVE 4 @9:30.
