9th Annual Burger Run AKA Guess-Your-Own-Time 10KM Result & Report

A great night in and around Carnaun last evening (Friday, 25 July).  Thirty people lined up and finished on what was a very warm evening for a 10KM run.  edenhill77 was there to capture the race - before, during and after - with his Flickr feed being updated as I write this.

James Corbett and his crew of helpers did a fine job of getting the race off pretty much on time and then having the burgers ready to eat by the time all the finishers had come through. The result was announced within 90 minutes of the race starting too!

Mayfly 10KM Results and Report

From the Race Director:

The third Mayfly 10k, was held on Saturday May 24th in cloudy weather with a fairly stiff breeze to boot. With the usual mix of competitive runners and local people hoping to complete their first 10k race, there was a super atmosphere in the town. With the previous years’ winners absent, the race organisers were unsure who to expect over the finish line in first place. A number of Galway City Harrier singlets were visible on the start line so smart money was on one of these! Last year’s female winner, Sinead Brody, was back to defend her title and with her recent form in the 5k series she was going to be a force to contend with! Local athlete Emer O’ Connell, Corrib AC, had a great novice cross country but picked up an early season injury and had only returned training a few weeks prior.
