Women's Mini Marathon Galway Result

See http://www.womensminimarathongalway.ie/ but also http://www.redtagtiming.com for a full result, copied here as XLS and PDF.

Congrats to all Athenry AC runners but especially to Jane Ann Meehan who was fourth overall in 41:26 and to Miriam Wall who broke 47 in 15th place.

I passed the event at Taylor's Hill on my way to the Feile Finals on Sunday and it looked like hard work coming up that hill from the prom :-(.

Clare 10K Result

The Clare 10k results from last Saturday are attached as a HTML file, via the http://www.clare10k.com web site.

What is noteworthy (for me anyhow) is that a good friend of AAC and a well known character on the road race circuit here in Galway, ran sub-40 for the first time ever: Gabriel Gardiner of neighbouring club, Craughwell AC, and native of Ardrahan.

A sincere and heartfelt congratulations. It really puts it up to the rest of us who haven't broken through this barrier yet.

The results of the 2nd annual Portumna 100km/50km/Marathon/5KM are attached.  I am sorry not to have made it out to support a number of Athenry AC athletes, in particular 'tiny' Ed Egan who is in fantastic form at present, but I can't be everywhere at once. 

I am very gratified to note that a neighbour's child, Mike Cunningham, took the 50KM victory.  Good to see that Cappamore are able to produce more than the odd good rugby (or hurling) player.

Annaghdown 10KM Result and Report

The clouds are rolling in...

Find attached the provisional results and prize list from last evening's 5th annual midsummer's Annaghdown 10KM!

My mini-report: It poured before; it poured afterwards; it stayed dry during; phew.

Please contact Paul Fallon at pfallon1965 at live dot ie if you want to clarify the race result in any way.

Bilboa 10KM Result

Another year and another missed Bilboa "Ger Mullane" 10k :-(.

Monivea 5KM Results and Report

The persistent rain failed to dampen the spirits of the 155 runners and walkers who took to the streets of Monivea for the second annual running of the 5K course.  A further 30 parents and children participated in the family walk ensuring that very age group from 2 to 80 years was represented. All finished with a smile but were glad of the cups of tea and scones dished out by the hardworking volunteers in Monivea Rugby Club in the Community Centre afterwards

Six of Six and Smiles All Round- Loughrea 5km

The last of the 5km series, and more rain didn't dampen club spirits with another great turnout of 65 athletes from the club.
GCH's Matthew Bidwell and Regina Casey were unbeatable with 6 wins from 6 races in the series.

Brian takes the Honours in Cong 8km!

Athenry AC's Brian O'Connor had a wonderful win at the Cong 8km on Saturday in a zippy 28:38.

Here's a short report from Adrian McKiernan, one of the organisers:

"We had a wonderful day and a great turnout when you take into account the other events that were on at the weekend also ie. Rough Diamond (Connemara), Sky Road 8km (Clifden), Ladies Mini Marathon (Dublin) etc.
We had 141 participants on the day and the general reports from everyone was that they loved the course............very unique...........well marshalled and challenging towards the end.
