A total of 49 Athenry AC and guest athletes lined up at St. Mary's on Friday night last (23 July) for the 5th annual Athenry AC Handicap 10KM AKA Burger Run. The course was slightly modified at very late notice to avoid traversing the railway level crossing near the town but it did not result in any disruption as the event took place with clockwork efficiency, ably RD'ed by James Corbett, with Maire Treasa Beatty and a gaggle of other helpers in close attendance. Derek Conerney and his crew were cooking up a storm in the background!

A small yet strong field showed up for the 2010 running of the Galway Track and field 10000m race last night in Dangan ,
The race was won by Matt Bidwell of GCH in a time of 32.45, just ahead of Paul Mcnamara, Athenry AC, who is just returning to action following his recent Cork marathon.
Well the weather didn't ddin't detract from some of the hardier runners in Galway as the took to the track in search of an exclusive PB.
This reporter doesn't know of many track miles held in the country this year, so well done those that took the opportunity when it arose.

Brilliant day, brilliant event. Take a bow Tony Killarney and crew on a well organised race and another worthy addition to the road racing calendar of the county. The weather did its best to intrude but without success. Over 100 enjoyed the scenic course and if there is a most verdant finishing 300 metres to a race anywhere in Ireland, please let me know.
See below for graphic proof...
A fantastic day out for this unique race!
Michael Walsh of Craughwell AC picked up the first prize, being only two seconds out. He proceeded to donate the entire prize back to the organisers.
James Lundon's tactic of waiting for an extra few seconds at the finish line paid off as he picked up a minor placing!
