The 10th running of Athenry AC's Guess-Your-Own-Time/Handicap/Burger Run 10KM Championship took place on Friday, 24 July 2015.
James Corbett and his now usual band of helpers clicked into action at race HQ, St. Mary's GAA grounds out in Carnuan.
A record crowd of 45 toed the line at 8PM, to take in the old Fields 10KM course (with slight modifications, primarily the taking out of the level crossing, which this year was a very good idea as the gates in hte town came down as the 45 minute runners were coming through).
East Galway Athletic Club and the Castleblakeney Charity Committee would like to express our sincere thank you to all who took part in our annual 5km and 8km races in aid of Galway Oncology Unit. Final figures still to be tallied but we will have made in the region of €4000 for the unit
Day 2 of the County Track and Field took place on Sunday 28th June at the Regional Sports Centre, Dangan. A small but very active Athenry AC team took home 15 medals, including a massive haul of 6 medals for Anne Lyng who only decided on the morning of competition she was going to compete. Anne took gold in 100m, 200, and 800m and silver in 400m, long jump and high jump. Yvonne Knight, who took a bit of persuading to compete ended up with 4 golds - 400m, LJ, discus and high jump.
