Beyond the Limit One More Time - Connemara 100 2011

(Report with thanks to www.connemara100.com)

For some, a marathon is as far as the imagination runs, but for fifteen athletes the prospect of running one hundred miles in Connemara lay ahead on August 13. The Connemara 100 Mile Ultra Marathon, now in it's third year drew the biggest field to date. Starting in Clifden at 6.00am on Saturday and traveling non-stop through the hills and valleys of Connemara, the scenery provided some distraction during the longest single road race in the country.

Claregalway 10km Race Results 13-Aug

Another rainy weekend in Galway, but there wasn't much fatigue just a week after the Streets of Galway with a good club showing at the annual Claregalway 10km .

Local GCH athlete Matt Bidwell once again took the honours in 32:58.
Another GCH member, Helen Corbett, took the women's race in 41:40.

First Athenry AC athlete home was Brian Bruton in 35:47. Mark Breen placed as second V40 male in a time of 0:37:18.

Galway County Track and Field Results 2011

A little belated but here are the Galway County Track and Field results for 2011 (Thursday 16th, 23rd and 30th June).

As home to the 'fastest white man in the world', Paul Hession, Athenry AC have their own track claim to fame, but numbers participating from the club weren't high this year.

Brian Bruton placed well in a competitive men's 5000m on night 1. Alan Burke picked up a bronze medal, while managing to avoid the dreaded DFL in a small field in the men's 400m on night 1, and had a solid run in the 1500m on night 2.


A huge congratulations to Frank Burke, who successfully completed his first Ironman distance triathlon in Bolton, England on Sunday.

It's a challenging distance, with a 2.4 mile swim and 112 mile cycle, followed by a 26 mile run.

His results were as follows:
Swim 1:07 (nice)
Bike 6:28 (great bike on one of the toughest Ironman bike courses - very windy and hilly)

...followed by...
Run 3:21

Bay 5KM Relay Results

Nice to see a sprinkling of Athenry AC runners in the first page of the results!

Another excellent event I've been reliably told.

I was otherwise detained in another part of the city, for my sins, refereeing (badly!) an U-16 B hurling game.  The less said about that the better, so as to protect the guilty.

Results - again courtesy of our friends in www.RedTagTiming.com - are attached.

Renville 5KM Results

I understand there was an amazing crowd at the first running of this race last week in Renville out in Maree/Oranmore.

Congratulations to the organisers on a super race and the large amount of money raised for its very good cause!

Athenry AC Burger Run Result and Report

The club's 6th (or 7th?) Burger Run took place in near perfect
running conditions last Friday evening around the old Fields 10KM
course with slight modifications. Dull, slightly chilly, misty!

It's the now traditional Name-Your-Own-Time format and is a
non-championship race but has the designation of being the club's
10KM. Confused? These things are important to some...to me!

Twenty nine toed the line, with 28 from the club and one guest,
Diarmuid Quill (Craughwell AC). Self-estimated times ranged from
40 minutes to over 65 but everyone started the race with the same

Boston Scientific 5km Results

The fourth Boston Scientific 5km road race took place last night (Wednesday, July 13th) in glorious sunshine in Maree. Over 220 runners took to the roads - from Boston Scientific, local running clubs (Athenry AC, Galway City Harriers, Craughwell AC, Clare River Harriers among others) and Ohio!! The race raised over €3400 for Cope, BSC's chosen charity of the year.
