A very different day from the first two, with several very heavy showers passing over during events. Attached are the results from day 3.
If you need any mistakes to be corrected then please leave a comment below.
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.
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.
Results from this evening's (4 July) Galway Track and Field Championships Day 1 attached.
Reports and pictures to follow in due course. John O'Connor's photos are already accessible from his Flickr feed.
Please add a comment if anything needs to be corrected in results.
Congrats to Miriam Wall of this athletics parish on finishing 7th in 43:35 in last Sunday's (23 June) Galway Simon Women's Mini Marathon. No wonder the woman was smiling at the finish line - see above.
** Full provisional result now attached v2 **
It was breezy (i.e. the wind really whipped up during the race) and was a bit damp (i.e. poured cats and dogs and other animals) but it did not dampen the spirits in Annaghdown last Friday evening (21 June) for the 7th running of their mid-summers evening 10KM.
The Craughwell 5KM School Run went off without a hitch early yesterday (Sunday, 16 June) afternoon, starting and finishing around Craughwell NS - close to the start of the 5KM series. Thanks to all the organisers for putting on a fine show. A goodly number of the usual suspects were there from the neighbouring club i.e. US AKA AAC!!!!!
