Athenry AC Fit4Life Charity 5k

After a week of torrential rain the race organisers were casting nervous glances at the forecast to see if waders would be the gear of choice for yesterday morning’s Athenry AC Fit4Life Charity 5k, but there was no need to worry as the morning dawned with some fantastically mild weather, perfect for racing.

Connacht XC Day 1 Results

Result from Connacht XC Day 1 @ Bushfield in Loughrea are attached. Congrats to all Athenry AC athletes who finished, let alone placed well, but especially Jane Ann Meehan who was second in the women's ace and Mary Kealy who had her first outing in Athenry AC colours there.

Conditions had much deteriorated from the Galways at the same location a month before.  Colder; much wetter; much, much slippier.

The organisation was top class from the local club & county, from the logistics, to the clubhouse, to the man with the computer cranking out results ;-).

DCM 2014 *Updated*

After a DCM 2013 that brought huge success for the club many members were turning up for this year’s edition of the Dublin City Marathon with lofty ambitions. But on a day that brought soaring temperatures (for October) & strong gusts, coupled with a new route that most people found taxing, those lofty ambitions were lowered for many on a tough day out in the capital. That’s no slight on our members as it was clear that this year’s race became a war of attrition for many entrants as PB targets were shelved with many people happy just to finish this year.

Martin Egan (Beagh) 10KM Race Result and Report

** Final Result posted **

The wind was strong, the rain was sometimes heavy, but the inclement conditions did not stop 65 hardy runners turning out for the Martin Egan Memorial 10KM in Beagh/Shanaglish today, Sunday 19 October 2014, the 5th running of the event south of Gort. 

The field included many fantastic athletes including Gerry Ryan, Gerry Carty, Conor Dolan, Mick Rice and Kieran Diviney, to name but a few. The recreational runners and walkers were missed by the organisers; all who togged out today were serious about their running and it showed.

Carna (Conamara) 10KM Result

A beautiful day out in Carna on Saturday evening last (11 October) for the 4th running in their popular 10KM Road Race. 

Congrats to all the organisers on a very well organised event, with the refreshments coming in for especially high mention afterward, in the Carna Bay Hotel, a hope, step & jump from the start/finish line.  If I get a better bowl of soup all year, I'll be surprised.

Well done to Alan O'Brien on a fine time.  A Garmin Connect analysis of the course is here.

Weekend Round Up

In what has easily become one of the busiest weekends for racing on the running calendar over the last few years we had groups of runners in action across multiple races on Saturday & Sunday.

Top of the pile was Dee Grady who ran a brilliant 2.13.11 in the 30k Human Race in Limerick on Sunday. On a windy day & with a hilly course Dee finished as 3rd female to add another podium finish to her achievements.

Galway Cross Country Result and Report (UPDATED)

A great day in Loughrea AC's Bushfield complex this afternoon, Sunday 5 October.

It was the Even Ages (U-10 to U-18) and adult races.  Over 300 toed the line across the 12 races, with huge numbers in both adult races.  A full result will be attached when they are made available.

Many and sincere thanks to all in Loughrea AC who put on a superb show, AGAIN, with the course itself in outstanding condition & excellently appointed.  There were loads of tea and biscuits afterward in their new clubhouse for those who stayed around for the craic & chat.
