Tonabrucky 6KM Challenge Race Report and Result

Hundreds turn out for Tonabrucky Challenge

The Tonabrucky Challenge, now in its third year saw close to 300 runners and walkers taking to the roads of Rahoon on Saturday 8 June. The race which is AAI Certified this year attracted a large running crowd from all across Ireland and as far as America. The hilly course which rakes in the entire Tonabrucky and parts of the Rahoon area is notorious with local runners for it mountainous terrain!

Ballybrit Makes the 5k Headlines

For the second time this year, the 5k series had a new route for one of its races. Lots of parking spaces, near the motorway exit, no interference from cars, the route had a lot going for it. Some complained of the tight turns at the start, but I think that overall this move from Dangan was a success.

Gerry Ryan Wins European Gold

Congratulations to Craughwell AC's Gerry Ryan who last weekend won 10k gold in the M45 category in the European Veteran's Non-Stadia Championships. In fact, all age categories race together and Gerry was second overall, being beaten by one person in the M35 bracket.

Gerry registered 32:03 in the race which this year was held in the Czech Republic.

Ballindine 4 Mile (Guess Your Finish Time) Result

Tommy Joe Whyte of Tuam AC guessed his own time spot-on at the Ballindine 4 Mile on 18th May.  Liam McDonnell of Swinford was second just a second behind TJ.

Adrian Fitzmaurice of Athenry AC was only two seconds slower that what he predicted and achieved 3rd place with Brendan Monaghan of Tuam AC one place behind and proving again that he is always up there with some of the best at this prediction lark.

Balmy Evening in Craughwell Brings Great Times

Quite a number of athletes registered PBs in the Craughwell 5k on Tuesday evening, always a great feeling for an athlete. Chief among them, that I heard anyway, was Martin O'Hara who knocked a shattering one minute off his previous best with a chip time of 19:20. If you're gonna break the big 20 minute barrier, why not do it in style?

Claregalway 5k Carries on Series

The Claregalway leg of the Galway 5k Series again brought out big numbers as just over 600 runners completed the run. The winning time was considerably better than last week's Athenry leg as Peter O'Sullivan recorded a great 16:02 to win by a good margin from Billy King with Enda Mannion in third. Our Sinead Foran was second among the women, well done again.
