Now in their third year, the Kinvara Rock And Road Half Marathon and 10k have thrived as very successful event races. The 2013 versions stopped the traffic for a while in the village last Saturday 2nd of March to let through the 531 finishers in the Half, and the fairly astonishing 713 finishers in the 10k race.
There is currently serious demand for all kinds of footraces at this juncture in time in the West of Ireland; long may it continue.
A soft day in Carnmore saw a total of 204 runners go to the line for the 3rd. Annual Carnmore Annual Turkey Trot. Competition was very keen with Matt Bidwell of GCH taking the honours in the mens race in a swift 16mins 01 secs and the Ladies winner by a good margin was Emer O'Leary from MSB. All the age categories were keenly contested.
On behalf of Carnmore HC I would like to take this oppoutunity to thank all the athletes, who came from far and near, for their participation and without whom the event would not have been so successful.
Clarenbridge Charity 10K Run/ Walk, November 25th 2012
Last Sunday was one of the colder days of Winter, however such conditions turned out to be perfect for what was to be the fourth annual Clarenbridge Charity 10K Run/ Walk. A record number of more than 300 participants found their way to Kilcornan in Clarenbridge to help raise much needed funds for the Irish Pilgrimage Trust, Lourdes Fund.
