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.

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!!!!!
Hundreds turn out for Tonabrucky Challenge
The Tonabrucky Challenge, now in its third year saw close to 300 runners and walkers taking to the roads of Rahoon on Saturday 8 June. The race which is AAI Certified this year attracted a large running crowd from all across Ireland and as far as America. The hilly course which rakes in the entire Tonabrucky and parts of the Rahoon area is notorious with local runners for it mountainous terrain!
Result from last Saturday's race is attached.
Six Athenry AC athletes made the trip to Cork and successfully completed the course on the June Bank Holiday Monday. They included Ruthann Sheehan who paced the 4:15 group to a T with 4:14:49.
For the second time this year, the 5k series had a new route for one of its races. Lots of parking spaces, near the motorway exit, no interference from cars, the route had a lot going for it. Some complained of the tight turns at the start, but I think that overall this move from Dangan was a success.
