A massive crowd in Oranmore on Wednesday evening (21 August) for the second running (2011 was the first) of their out-and-back 5KM. A number of Athenry AC runners took part. The weather held up, though there was a bit of an onshore breeze to buffet the runners on the outward out. Congrats to Maree AC on a successful race. The result is here.

A great night at the 28th running on The Streets yesterday, Saturday, 10 August! The results can be found on the GCH web site here.
Thanks to our neighbouring club on a fantastic evening's entertainment. The weather stayed clement, albeit a bit windy. The new course was favourable to fast time too.
The Great Glinsk Gallop has galloped its first race! Thank you to everyone who braved the tail end of the heatwave in July to support Caisleán Óir, Glinsk Community Childcare http://www.caisleanoir.com/ ; all the runners, walkers, volunteers, marshals, MC, warm-up lead, music, refreshments and prize-givers...and many many more who helped make this day possible. It was a great afternoon and the weather was perfect, not too hot and with a cooling breeze as people ran to the finish line!
Thanks everyone for coming out on the night. Congratulations to our Club Champion Senan Coffey, our Master Chamption Marion Quirke, and our Fastest Runner on the night Ray Somers.
Ballinderreen 8KM are here.

A very different day from the first two, with several very heavy showers passing over during events. Attached are the results from day 3.

Provisional result is attached. Anyone with any good images from the evening?
Women's winner was Mairead Sullivan while first home and men's winner was Ray Somers. We had both women and men guests this year, with both prizes going Craughwell AC side, in very close attendance to Athenry's own in the predictions stakes.
Great work by James Corbett and his large band of merry - but ultra efficient - helpers on what turned out to be not such a bad evening for running.
P.S. Whose new car is the article image? Clue: he's just upgraded from a 1997 Red Starlet!
Please find attached a final set of results for Day 2 of the Galway Track and Field championships. The 5000m result has been slightly ammended to remove an athlete who appeared in the results by mistake and also to add Sean McDermott from Castlegar who had been omitted. The 5000m results has been checked and double checked now so all should be in good order.
** Updated Provisional result attached **
Another fine crowd of local athletes made their way to Headford last Saturday (5 July) evening for the 9th running of their 8KM road race.
Athenry AC were well represented throughout the field. JA Meehan was 3rd senior woman home in near 31 minutes.
An updated provisional result is attached (as PDF) and a report and some images from the race will follow in due course.
