Ballinderreen 10km Results

Despite the gales & monsoon like rain that persisted for most of this morning, the clouds dried up for nearly 100 runners that turned out for the Ballinderreen 10km today.

Gary Thornton made a rare appearance on the local road running scene & was rewarded with a win, beating GCH clubmate Matt Bidwell into second with a time of 30.29, nearly a full two & a half minutes ahead of Matt. Julio Cesar Castro of Kilmurry was third with a 33.05.

Carnmore 5km Turkey Trot Result

The wet & blustery weather didn’t prevent a good turnout by the Athenry members for this local 5km race yesterday. Twenty club members toed the line with nine of those crossing the finish line in under 20 minutes, amongst those, Kieran Guiry, who after very many attempts :), dipped under the 20 minute marker for the first time. He did it in style too with a time of 19.26 & in current form it won't be long before he breaks the 19 minute barrier.

Clarenbridge 10km Results

Congratulations to Jane-Ann Healy who made it two wins in the space of eight days, following up her win in Abbeyknockmoy last week with her 1st place in the Clarenbridge 10km today in 38.34. She was followed closely by another Athenry AC runner, Sinead Foran, who took second position a further 15 seconds back. They were well clear of the 3rd place female & after another close finish it looks like we will see some great battles between these two over the next year.

East Galway 4M Result and Report

Full provisional result from the East Galway 4M (held in Abbeyknockmoy) yesterday, 17 November, is attached.

From the Race Director:

All here at East Galway Athletic Club were very pleased with the turnout for this year’s annual 4 Mile Challenge in Abbeyknockmoy last Sunday. Over 137 people registered for the event with 126 people completing this challenging course. For the 2nd year running the elements conspired against us, but despite that, a great response from other clubs helped to make this club race a great success and definitely one for the diaries.

Athenry Ladies Lead The Way

Congrats to Jane-Ann Meehan who won the hilly Abbeyknockmoy 4mile road race today which was organised by East Galway Athletics Club.  Further south Ruth Ann Sheahan was first lady home (& third person overall) with a brilliant 3.10 marathon in the Eddie Murphy Memorial marathon.

Full report to follow on both.

Gort 10KM Result

The second running of the Gort RFC 10KM took place today (Sunday, 20 October) on a relatively flat course on the Tubber/Beagh side of Gort, starting and finishing in the Square in the town itself.

Congrats to Peter Minihane and his efficient crew of helpers on a well organised race, both before and after, especially their ability to keep the rain away, with it stopping just before the race started exactly at 2PM, and staying away for the rest of the afternoon.

NUIG 8KM Race Report and Result

The first NUI Galway 8K took place in near perfect running conditions on Saturday 12th Oct.

After a couple of weeks of frantic preparation, all the pieces came together on the day with local charity Jigsaw benefiting from the proceeds.

A great turnout with almost 400 finishers, some of the usual suspects showed up to compete up front and throughout the pack for bragging rights and podium places.

This event was part of Nui Galways Alumni weekend and a big show of NUI Galway Alumni and Students and Staff made up over half the field.
