It's a long, long way to Tipperary but longer again to Waterford

At the recent Coldwood 4M road race (late-January 2017) Andy Talbot mentioned to me how he was trying to make a team for the National Masters cross-country, which was to be held in Waterford in a few weeks. Knowing full well this would be no place for slow runners, and only the crème de la crème would be there, I gave him a 'maybe' but try and get someone better instead.
 

Craughwell 10M result

See here and attached for provisional result from today's race, Sunday 19 March 2017.

Congrats to Craughwell AC on a superb event today.  

A good smattering of Athenry AC athletes competed successfully, which saw Laura Shaughnessy (DSD, ex-Loughrea AC) first person home.  Has this ever happened before in a local road race, a lady being the first home?  Congratulations to this excellent local athlete on this pretty unique achievement!

Abbey 8KM result and report

The biggest and best ever Abbey (Loughrea) 8KM race took place in Abbey village last Sunday, 12 March 2017.
 
There were almost three hundred participants, a record for the event. Conditions were ideal for the Annual 8K run.
 
The newly-designed course was flat which yielded some very fast finishing times. There was a large crowd of enthusiastic supporters present to support all athletes.
 

Ballycotton 10M result

See here for a full result from the recent Ballycotton 10, Sunday 12 March 2017.  

At least five AAC athletes made the long trip down to this 40th running (1978-2017) of the classic distance: Lyall Guiney, Martin Keane, Ray Somers, Mairea Sullivan and James Lundon.  

2017 Galway 5KM Series announced

The ever popular Galway 5KM series is back again this year.
 
One notable change is that this year Tuam will not be hosting a leg this year due to roadworks on their route. Caltra will be taking their place.
 
The Athenry race will once again be the final leg of the series and we are currently working to finalise the actual route.
 
Entries will open at 8pm on Friday March 24th on Active. As usual it will more than likely sell out very quickly.

Results from today's (Sunday, 26 February 2017) race - its 9th iteration - are attached and here.

A tough day over the new course.  

Kudos to everyone who completed the course, and very well done to the organisers, with the race excess going to local Athenry Cancer Care.
