Kinvara Rock & Road 10k & Half Marathon

 

Last Saturday saw the return of the brilliant Kinvara Rock & Road series of races in south Galway. Only in its fourth year, this race has firmly established itself as one of the most popular & well organised events west of the Shannon. With a sell out crowd of 1500 a big congratulations must be given to Chris & his crew for getting the event to this high level in such a short timeframe.

Despite the incessant torrential downpours of late, the Sun gods have been smiling down on us for our weekends racing over the past few weeks. If only we could do something about the wind!

A lovely sunny afternoon greeted the 174 runners who turned up in Gorgeous Gort for their 8k outing today. Previously held as a 4 miler, South Galway AC increased the distance this year which gave Galway based athletes a chance to run a mini ‘8k Series’  over the first six weeks of the year, with Tuam AC & Maree AC also holding 8k’s since the turn of the year.

Maree AC 8k Results

After some recent weather more befitting Noah’s Ark, the annual Maree 8k couldn’t have been more different. Glorious sunshine & a headwind in sections greeted the 326 runners who turned out for the 5th edition of this event.

Longwood Marathon & Dungarvan 10mile

Three members of Athenry AC have at least one marathon under their belts even at this early stage of the year after Ruthann Sheahan, Valerie Glavin & Ed Egan completed the East of Ireland Marathon Series, Longwood Marathon last weekend.

After easing herself back into training over the last couple of months this was Val’s first completed marathon after a three year hiatus. But knowing Val, this is surely only the start & with a 4.25 completion time this was possibly used as a training run for bigger & better things in Donadea next month.

Coldwood 4M Result

Kudos to the nearly 190 hardy souls who braved the elements for yesterday’s 2nd annual Coldwood 4 mile race. Starting & finishing at the National School on the N6, the heavy winds didn’t prevent some decent racing with both the men’s & women's course records falling on the day. 

Tuam AC 8m Results

The sun shone long enough for most runners to finish today's race on a fine crisp afternoon for running the 10th Tuam 8km which was again hosted brilliantly by the Mongahans & all at Tuam AC today.

First home was Paddy Hamilton of Annadale Striders in 24.21, 11 seconds off the course record which is currently held by current National Marathon Champion, Sean Hehir. Paddy was out front on his own for most of the race & was well clear of the field with Stephen McKeigue of Ferbane AC nearly two & a half minutes behind in second. Fintan Hyland of GCH completed the podium.

Craughwell Marathon Result and Report

Those who ran in Craughwell before Christmas will not forget it in a hurry; neither will the few spectators who braved the elements that day!

A provisional result is attached below (thanks to Tony Nevin).

The image here says it better than any of my words could (Ed Egan, Ruthann Sheahan, Valerie Glavin, David Noone, George Livanos):

Resolution Run Result

Well who knew Shop Street was so steep!

A race that, only in its fourth year, has already become a staple in many people’s racing calendar’s, today’s Resolution Run 5km was another well organised race from Tony Killarney & his band of merry helpers. After basking in sunshine last year the weather was less inviting this time around with a cold breeze & showers keeping the waiting masses huddled closely at the start line.
