Coolarne 5KM Result and Report

Turloughmore Hurling Club held its inaugural 5k Run/Walk on Saturday (28 July) in Coolarne.

Over 150 people – both young and old participated. The race got underway just after 6pm.

Race conditions were quite blustery and the rain managed to stay away until one shower midway the race, which was probably a welcome sight to some of the runners!

The first man home was Julio Cesar F.Castro of Kilmurry Ibrikane AC in a blistering time of 16:14. He was followed closely by Jason Broderick of Craughwell AC in a time of 16:24.

2012 'Burger Run' Result and Report

A record entry and a lovely evening was had for the 6th running of the Athenry AC name-your-own-time 10K AKA 'The Burger Run' in Carnaun on Friday, 27 July 2012!

Run over the old (give or take) Fields course, this year's event attracted 40 entries.  We even had some guest women unlike last year!  Many of the stalwarts of previous events turned out again, with some returning stars also graced us with their presence, some who had not been seen racing for a number of years.

Boston Scientific 5k in Maree

By Peter Delmer

The fifth annual Boston Scientific 5k took place on Wednesday evening in Maree with a record field of 284 (mostly) smiling finishers.  The organisers would like to thank all the people who took part in the race and who helped out in a myriad of ways.  All proceeds will go to the Boston Scientific Charity of the Year – Ability West.

A bunch of three were inseparable from gun-to-tape and only 2.5 seconds separated TJ McHugh, Ian Egan and Billy King in a terrific sprint finish to the line.  TJ’s winning time of 16:35 earned him first prize on the night.

Results for Galway 2012 T&F Championships

Peadar High Jump

Three Athenry AC men featured on both evenings of the Galway Track and Field championships recently at Dangan. All three, Iain Shaw, Peadar Nugent, and Pearse Hunter, entered into the spirit of the championships by competing in a variety of events. Iain by the way is now best known as a field event man but in his prime he was a quality sprinter with a best 100m in less than 10.8.

See results for both evenings attached, and also some photos from Iain Shaw in our photo gallery: http://www.athenryac.com/galleries

Headford 8KM Race Result and Report

The 8th Headford 8KM went off like a dream on Saturday evening last.

A record crowd over a dry course on a slightly blustery evening.  A conspicious turnout from the Athenry club with a lot of the usual suspects down the field to add spice.

It was only my third time running the race: for the last four years it's clashed with Limerick playing Hurling and Football elsewhere :(.
