There has been some debate over the last few weeks about whether or not Maree had ousted Tuam as the PB course of the series but after last night’s event that debate is certainly put to bed. Athenry had another great turn out for the race with 79 members racing, 64 of whom set seasons bests times with many of those also setting PB’s.
Result from last weekend are here!
Gallery of podium images are here!
Whilst most members seemed to be saving themselves for the known flats of Tuam next week, there were still a few who took the opportunity that the perfect weather afforded them with 10 members running their fastest time of the series in last nights Leg 5 in Ballybrit.
Congratulations to Mick Rice on his recent age group win during his travels to the States. Mick took part in the Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon alongside over 7000 other competitors. In a very competative field, where a sub 90 mins would just about get you into the Top 150, Mick placed 8th overall in a time of 1.19.35 (6.05min/mile pace) & first in his age group.
