ATTACHED (and below) ARE RESULTS OF THE 9TH DECARE DENTAL/CLAREMORRIS 5 MILE HELD IN WINDY BUT DRY CONDITIONS ON SATURDAY EVENING LAST JUNE 26TH 2010.
A VERY COMPETITIVE RACE, IT WAS RACE NO 2 IN THE MAYOAC LEAGUE. NEXT UP WILL BE THE WESTARO MINI-MARATHON [ALSO KNOWN AS THE BALLA 10K] ON SATURDAY EVENING JULY 24TH. MORE DETAILS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN THE COMING DAYS.
Well done to James Corbett who continues on the comeback trail as well as Aoife & Ray for lasting the new course.
Brilliant day, brilliant event. Take a bow Tony Killarney and crew on a well organised race and another worthy addition to the road racing calendar of the county. The weather did its best to intrude but without success. Over 100 enjoyed the scenic course and if there is a most verdant finishing 300 metres to a race anywhere in Ireland, please let me know.
Five down and just one more to go - Loughrea hosted the 5th of this year's Galway 5km series under clear blue evening skies last evening. There was another very strong turnout with almost 500 people taking part on the night. As one would expect from a club with such a long and illustrious tradition in the art of road race organisation, everything went like clockwork.
Well it was damp, there were some little hills but we got there. Another notch in the belt and another stride towards Dangan.Although the numbers were slightly down last night there was still a great crowd there who made light of the drizzly conditions. It's hard to put a damper on these Tuesday evenings.
There are a small number of corrections and adjustments still pending from last week. I'm trying to collate all of these into a single batch of corrections and hope to publish a fully up-to-date set of results in a day or so. I will also hopefully have a combined Athenry/Tuam/Craughwell datasheet in a day or so, but don't want to generate that until I have all of the corrections included in the Tuam and Craughwell sheets.
