Congrats to Corrib AC on the first running of their Killannin 8KM last Saturday afternoon.
Full result is here.
Another great turnout by Athenry in New Inn for their 3rd annual 5k.
It was a cracking day out there & the heat caught a few of us by surprise but there were still a few PB's produced. Gearoid Rohan, Ruth Ann Sheahan, Jane Ann Healy & Ronan McCarthy all improved on their 5k times.
Tiernan Burke produced nearly a 2 minute PB with a 20.25 & now has Frank worriedly looking over his shoulder. Bragging rights in the Burke household could be hotly contested come the 5k series I think.
Full results is now attached.
The official results of the 10m County Championships, which formed part of the Craughwell 10m, have now been released & give Athenry a huge haul of medals. Congrats to all.
Congrats to Mairead Blake on her very first podium finish with a third place in the Abbey 10km at the weekend.
Find attached the provisional result from the weekends action in Abbey. Congrats to Declan Donnelly, Gerry Larkin and their crew on a fine, fine race in dry conditions out in deepest East Galway.
Nine Athenry AC members made the annual trek to Ballycotton over the weekend for their famous 10mile event.

Last Saturday saw the return of the brilliant Kinvara Rock & Road series of races in south Galway. Only in its fourth year, this race has firmly established itself as one of the most popular & well organised events west of the Shannon. With a sell out crowd of 1500 a big congratulations must be given to Chris & his crew for getting the event to this high level in such a short timeframe.
It was a day to dig deep! With a vicious headwind for much of the course this wasn’t a day for PB racing, it was a war of attrition.
Despite the incessant torrential downpours of late, the Sun gods have been smiling down on us for our weekends racing over the past few weeks. If only we could do something about the wind!
A lovely sunny afternoon greeted the 174 runners who turned up in Gorgeous Gort for their 8k outing today. Previously held as a 4 miler, South Galway AC increased the distance this year which gave Galway based athletes a chance to run a mini ‘8k Series’ over the first six weeks of the year, with Tuam AC & Maree AC also holding 8k’s since the turn of the year.
The Irish National 50km Championships were held on a muddy but runable course in Donadea Forest Park this morning. Respresenting Athenry AC were David Noone, Valerie Glavin, Maeve Noone, Ed Egan & Siobhan Guinan who was making her first foray into ultra running.
