Labane 10KM Result and Report

** Official Result attached **

The second annual Labane/Ardrahan/Galway Sports Partnership 10KM took place yesterday (Saturday, 20 April 2013) around the pan-handled course, starting and finishing in the interesting village of Labane, midways between Ardrahan and Gort, off the main Galway/Limerick Road.

The organiers put on a super show again, including ensuring the weather stayed dry albeit a bit windy, which buffeted the runners constantly over the first half of the race.

A full provisional result and prize list is attached below.

Abbey 10KM Result and Report

Gerry Larkin and his enthusiastic band of helpers from the hinterland of Abbey did themselves and their village & parish proud with their organisational efforts today (17 March) in running the first Abbey 10KM Road Race.

Over 150 toed the line with the men's winner coming home a little under 37 and a half minutes later, Stuart Moloney of Mooreabbey Milers, but originally from much closer to Abbey I'm reliably told.  The women's winner was a few minutes after that, Caroline Whiriskey of Loughrea AC, another child of a neighbouring parish.

Ballycotton 10

One of the most historic races in Ireland, the Ballycotton 10, took place last Sunday, 3rd March. It used to be one of THE races of the year for Athenry AC but despite a nearby 10 miler in Craughwell and many other local alternatives we still got eight runners to the starting line this year.

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.

Gorgeous Gort 4M Race Result

The 2nd iteration of the Gorgeous Gort 4M Road Race went well on Sunday last (17 February 2013)!

South Galway AC got a great day for the race and a rush of late entries took the number competing over 110.  Well done to Declan Belton and his crew of helpers on a well-run event.

Only one Athenry AC competitor ran, Dave Dunne, coming home easily under 27.

Full result is attached.  Photos from the event are on their Facebook site:
