Sunday 19th January 2014, the finish line of the 10th edition of the Tuam AC annual 8k race. 31.38 on the clock & Frank Burke crosses the line, pipped at the post by Kieran Guiry a second earlier in what was one in a series of great results for Kieran but what signalled the beginning of Franks ‘Annus Horribilis’ as one injury set back after another had Frank doubting he would line up at another start line again.

Full provisional result attached. Congrats to all Athenry AC athletes who togged out and ran on what was a cold and quite windy early afternoon in Carnmore. Jane Ann Meehan won the women's race while Gearoid Rohan beat Ray Somers who beat Mick Rice in what looked to be a battle royale just ahead of her, all in the 18:0Xs.
P.S. Congrats to the Athenry U-21 hurlers likewise on their 'A' success today against Tynagh/Abbey-Duniry.
A lovely day and a good turnout for the Clarenbridge 10KM, last Sunday, 23 November. Congrats to the organisers on an excellently-appointed race and one that the local running community have taken to their hearts in recent years.
Congrats to all from Athenry AC who successfully competed on the day. We won the women's team prize while Jane Ann Meehan had a PB and was 5th finisher on what must be considered a very difficult course. The Garmin does not lie, see here. Mairead Sullivan & Marie Keary completed the women's team with a great run by Marie to receive her highest placing to date.
Results from the 49th running are attached.
Hard luck to Mary Kealy on her 4th place in the Masters Women!

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.
Provisional results attached below.
Word has reached the AAC.com news desk of an incursion of Athenry AC athletes down into deepest West Cork and have taken away some valuable booty in the process.
