Congrats to all in the club, especially Patrick Forde as race director, on an excellent event.

Larry Morgan Photography was there to capture the event in its totality.  Check his work out on Facebook.

Annaghdown 10KM result

Congrats to the organisers on reaching 10 with their running of a series of permitted races out in Annaghdown on Sunday, 19 June.  I was very sorry to miss it, having competed in all previous 9.  It was not to be on what looked like a really difficult day for racing - both my car and the Limerick hurlers let me down very badly that day.  Deirdre Brophy (Athenry AC) was the first woman how in a time very close to 40 minutes.  Congrats.  

Screengrabs of the 10KM result and prize winners is attached.

Here's to the next 10 iterations.

Galway 5km Series - Claregalway

The penultimate race of this year's 5km series brought us to Claregalway. A lovely warm and pleasant evening with 638 athletes turning out in force. This week 80 members of Athenry AC gathered along the starting line to take on the single lap race which started and finished at the Claregalway Corporate Park. There was great local support again this year and in particular along the final kilometre. Athenry's Martin Keane finished in 25:35 running his best 5km in years on the back of running a half marathon in Portugal on Sunday! What a man!

Galway 5km Series - Tuam

Over half way through the 5km series as 587 athletes took on the one loop circuit in Tuam on Tuesday. Athenry AC was represented by 77 from the club with Deirdre Brophy winning the women's race and Fergal Walsh finished 5th overall. There were 8 PB's reported but possibly more! A great nights running by the club. GCH finished very strong again this week taking 1st and 2nd places in both the men's and women's races. Also a great race by Shauna Bocquet Craughwell AC who finished second overall.
