Results of a Race [whether posted in Events or not]
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
East Galway/Moylough 10KM road race which took place in and
around this North East Galway village on Sunday, 16 October.
Congratulations to Linda Cummins (mellodyl2003 at yahoo.ie or
087-2801935) and her hard-working committee on this successful
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.
See both race results located here!
A huge congratulations to Paul Giblin who completed the Challenge Barcelona Ironman distance race today.
He finished with a superb time of 11:35:36 and with a strong sub 4 hour marathon; well under the 12 hours, to round off the Athenry AC year of triathlon feats nicely.
It's turning to autumn and the well titled 'Grey Lake' 10km took place on a grey but sunny-in-spots autumn day in Loughrea. With a few good hills taking the runners out around the start of the course, it's not one for a fast time but there was a strong showing and some fast times from 25 Athenry AC club members, especially considering that there were quite a few Dublin City Marathon trainees with tired legs running.
Results from the Clifden 10km run last weekend. This race is supported by Iain Shaw, as it has a special cause to raise money for the lifeboats in Clifden. He promises faithfully that he's going to run in it next year!
The annual Clifden Lifeboat 10k race took place on Sunday 11th September. The severe weather warnings did little to dampen the enthusiasm of participants who were rewarded with the rain clearing up prior to the race and the sun even making an appearance for a while.
Jane Ann Healy travelled in style down to Waterford, flying down with Aer Arann for the National Half Marathon championships. Fly she did, as she finished in 1:28:35, at my count in 22nd place in the senior women's category and improving on her Longford time from a couple of weeks ago; showing great form in her preparation for this year's Dublin City Marathon.
Kieran Guiry represented the club colours well with a time of 1:44:22.
The first race in the first ever Roscommon 5k Series kicked off bang on time in Roscommon town last Wednesday night, and Athenry's Conor Dolan took full advantage of this new fixture to put in a barnstorming run. Conor finished 2nd in 16.39 behind none other than suprise entrant Shane Healy, a former Irish Olympian over 1500m. Well done Conor. First lady home was Dalia Benedetti in 21:55 followed by Sandra Martin in 22:13.
