A good day in the Beagh/Shanaglish area yesterday with the third running of their 10K road race, now renamed the Martin Egan Memorial 10K Road Race. Margaret Walsh - organising her second race in a little under a month - and her band of helpers from the local area and her home club, South Galway, put on a fine show for visitors and locals alike.
A beautiful spring day in Gort, with not too much wind but almost too much sun for photographers at the finish line, greeted runners in the inaugural Gorgeous Gort 4M Road Race by South Galway AC this afternoon, Sunday 19 February .
A short three weeks after the Sixmilebridge Marathon, and Mick Rice and Ruthann Sheahan were out again this weekend to show the club the resilience of their muscles, with some great performances down in Clonakilty.
Ruthann ran a superb personal best, to the pride of her home town, Clonakilty!
No pictures yet - will get something nicer up if they put up some photos!
The third half marathon in Waterford this year; between the postponed Dec. 2010 half marathon held in January, the national half marathon in September and the 2011 WAC club race held this December, there were plenty of grumbles from local runners at the thought of having to trek out the Waterford bypass again on what is one of the less scenic half marathon routes in the country!
