It was a Fitness Analytics clean sweep in Kilconieron today as Matt Bidwell of GCH took the male honours with Jane Anne Meehan of Athenry AC taking the female honours. With an ever-growing number of Galway runners switching to the 'Matt Way', the sessions seem to be paying dividends as seven of the Top Ten were recent converts to the Fitness Anaytics training programme.

Congrats to all who took part in the Masters & Intermediate & Juvenile Development National Cross Country Championships which took place at Tuam's Palace Grounds today, Sunday 8 February . An event which was brilliantly organised by Brian Bruton, Brendan Monaghan & their army of helpers that included our own Maire Treasa Beatty, Iain Shaw and James Lundon.
Damien Larkin took the honours in Maree today in a time of 28.20 ahead of Lloyd Malcolm with David Meehan of Athenry in third, a minute behind the winner. With the National Cross Country taking place in Tuam there was a much changed field lining out but there was still a respectable 316 finishers. Clare Rowe of Tuam AC was first woman home with Loretto Duggan of Kilmurray Ibricken second & Edel Kelly in third.
Provisional Results Below.
Congats to all in Coldwood (Kevin Quirke, Harry Monson and all the other helpers in particular) for a lovely race last Sunday, 25 January 2015. The new season is well up and running and a big crowd from Athenry AC togged and ran in this early season encounter.
Provisional results located here.
Sunday 19th January 2014, the finish line of the 10th edition of the Tuam AC annual 8k race. 31.38 on the clock & Frank Burke crosses the line, pipped at the post by Kieran Guiry a second earlier in what was one in a series of great results for Kieran but what signalled the beginning of Franks ‘Annus Horribilis’ as one injury set back after another had Frank doubting he would line up at another start line again.
Another great race today around the streets of Galway City by Philip Harkin & his, crew which was well supported by our club as always.
Full report to follow.

Full provisional result attached. Congrats to all Athenry AC athletes who togged out and ran on what was a cold and quite windy early afternoon in Carnmore. Jane Ann Meehan won the women's race while Gearoid Rohan beat Ray Somers who beat Mick Rice in what looked to be a battle royale just ahead of her, all in the 18:0Xs.
P.S. Congrats to the Athenry U-21 hurlers likewise on their 'A' success today against Tynagh/Abbey-Duniry.
A lovely day and a good turnout for the Clarenbridge 10KM, last Sunday, 23 November. Congrats to the organisers on an excellently-appointed race and one that the local running community have taken to their hearts in recent years.
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.
