A great start to the 2012 road running season in Galway today in Renmore.
Two laps of Renmore following by a cup of tea is always a constructive way of spending an early Sunday afternoon.
Full provisional result and prize list is attached.
A short three weeks after the Sixmilebridge Marathon, and Mick Rice and Ruthann Sheahan were out again this weekend to show the club the resilience of their muscles, with some great performances down in Clonakilty.
Ruthann ran a superb personal best, to the pride of her home town, Clonakilty!
No pictures yet - will get something nicer up if they put up some photos!
The third half marathon in Waterford this year; between the postponed Dec. 2010 half marathon held in January, the national half marathon in September and the 2011 WAC club race held this December, there were plenty of grumbles from local runners at the thought of having to trek out the Waterford bypass again on what is one of the less scenic half marathon routes in the country!
Andrew Talbot and his crew from Carnmore Hurling Club put on a great show yesterday for their second annual Turkey Trot 5KM in Carnmore, Sunday 4 December 2011.
The weather gods smiled on the race too, though it was a close shave, with rain before and immediately after proceedings.
A very successful race in Clarinbridge last weekend with Athenry AC's Jane-Ann Healy (her running name!) winning the women's race and Mike Cunningham (Bilboa AC - silent "a"!) winning the men's race.
A clean sweep for the club yesterday at the inaugural Eddie Murphy Memorial marathon in Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare, with Ruthann Sheehan winning the women's marathon and Mick Rice winning the men's, in excellent times of 3:32 and 2:51 respectively.
With a choice of three different events being run on the same course (double marathon, 30 miles and marathon), our ultra runners went short for this event and it paid off!
With perfect conditions for running, the marathon started at midday, with 26 laps of a one mile loop through the village. No getting lonely out there, then.
