Results of a Race

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.

Coldwood 4 mile - 29th January 2017

A good turnout from Athenry AC graced the roads around Coldwood today, Sunday 29 January!  The weather was not very kind but it did not stop over 200 people from toeing the start line outside the school.  

Fergal Walsh was third in an excellent 22:05, followed closely by Dave Meehan, who dipped under 23 for the 4M course, the latter shouted on by his three girls near Pump House Cross.

The Fields of Athenry 10km

This years race was sponsored by Hygeia and we are very grateful for their support. Race Director Jim Leahy and his committee organised yet another very successful event. Now in its 15th year The Fields of Athenry 10km attracted 1031 athletes who took on the single loop of the 10km route which started at the train station and finished under the famous Arch. Weather conditions were perfect as we experienced the calm after storm Barbara! A headwind was reported for the first 4km after which the athletes experienced gentler and more pleasant weather as the sun appeared and it remained dry.

Corofin 8KM Result

The Athenry AC woman did the club proud in Corofin last Sunday, 6 November, with a 1/2/3 result.  

Deirdre Brophy followed up her sub-40 in Carna with a pretty much identical run over the new 8KM course.  Yvonne Fehilly kept her teammate honest with a superb near-32 (PB?) run.  Bernie Mulryan made a welcome re-appearance, taking the W50 prize, though she was also third woman home on the road.  Fiona Doughan was first F40 and 5th woman home, which Enda Munnelly was blessed amongst all those fast AAC women breaking 35!
