Kinvara rocks the road

Now in their third year, the Kinvara Rock And Road Half Marathon and 10k have thrived as very successful event races. The 2013 versions stopped the traffic for a while in the village last Saturday 2nd of March to let through the 531 finishers in the Half, and the fairly astonishing 713 finishers in the 10k race.

There is currently serious demand for all kinds of footraces at this juncture in time in the West of Ireland; long may it continue.

Ray Completes His Helsinki 24 Hour

Congratulations to Ray O'Connor who completed what I believe is his 3rd go at the Helsinki 24 Hour Ultra race on Sunday 24th Feb.

Ray covered a distance of 113.11 km, which converts to 70.28 miles. He finished 58th out of 80 in the male category. The race is run indoors on a track that is not quite 400m.

Ray will post his own report in time.

Carnmore 'Turkey Trot' 5KM Race Result and Report

A soft day in Carnmore saw a total of 204 runners go to the line for the 3rd. Annual Carnmore Annual Turkey Trot. Competition was very keen with Matt Bidwell of GCH taking the honours in the mens race in a swift 16mins 01 secs and the Ladies winner by a good margin was Emer O'Leary from MSB. All the age categories were keenly contested.

On behalf of Carnmore HC I would like to take this oppoutunity to thank all the athletes, who came from far and near, for their participation and without whom the event would not have been so successful.
