A very successful race in Clarinbridge last weekend with Athenry AC's Jane-Ann Healy (her running name!) winning the women's race and Mike Cunningham (Bilboa AC - silent "a"!) winning the men's race.

A clean sweep for the club yesterday at the inaugural Eddie Murphy Memorial marathon in Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare, with Ruthann Sheehan winning the women's marathon and Mick Rice winning the men's, in excellent times of 3:32 and 2:51 respectively.
With a choice of three different events being run on the same course (double marathon, 30 miles and marathon), our ultra runners went short for this event and it paid off!
With perfect conditions for running, the marathon started at midday, with 26 laps of a one mile loop through the village. No getting lonely out there, then.
Missed Hollymount for the fourth year in a row last Sunday - have run in five in the past (PB: 40:59).
It's a 10KM I like to go up to *if* I'm going well, most of the reason why I've not travelled since 2007 :-(.
Thanks to my good friend, Jo Gardiner, for PDFs of the results. See attached.

The DCM website seems to be suffering like my ankle tendons - overstretched and undertrained! A summary of club finishers below has been added - updated 02-Nov with as much information as we can piece together from AAI and comments. Apologies to anyone left out of initial results but it's been tricky piecing together!
Mick Rice led the Athenry men's team home, with yet another sub three hour marathon. Deirdre Quinn ran an excellent PB, dropping the 3:30 pacers to take the ladies home in 3:27.
Please find attached the official result from the first North

It was a very successful race for Athenry AC:
* First three in the Senior Women's race with Sinead Foran,
Sinead Brody and Bernie Mulryan finishing in a heap.
* Conor Dolan scored a massive PB to task second place in the
Senior Men's race.
The Athenry AC men's team did well on a day where there was plenty of distraction via a long wet windy last marathon training run around Ryehill to divert tired legs.
