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.

Race Report & Provisional Result - 2013 Fields of Athenry 10KM

Firstly, our apologies for the delay in getting this report & attached photo links uploaded. Between a series of electricity & broadband outages in the Athenry area due to the recent storm we were unable to get this sorted earlier.

It’s ‘As you were’ at this year’s 12th edition of the Fields of Athenry 10km as returning champions Eilish Kelly & Mick Clohisey of Raheny Shamrock AC retained their titles whilst Mick also took gold in the male team category.

Ballinderreen 10km Results

Despite the gales & monsoon like rain that persisted for most of this morning, the clouds dried up for nearly 100 runners that turned out for the Ballinderreen 10km today.

Gary Thornton made a rare appearance on the local road running scene & was rewarded with a win, beating GCH clubmate Matt Bidwell into second with a time of 30.29, nearly a full two & a half minutes ahead of Matt. Julio Cesar Castro of Kilmurry was third with a 33.05.

Carnmore 5km Turkey Trot Result

The wet & blustery weather didn’t prevent a good turnout by the Athenry members for this local 5km race yesterday. Twenty club members toed the line with nine of those crossing the finish line in under 20 minutes, amongst those, Kieran Guiry, who after very many attempts :), dipped under the 20 minute marker for the first time. He did it in style too with a time of 19.26 & in current form it won't be long before he breaks the 19 minute barrier.

Clarenbridge 10km Results

Congratulations to Jane-Ann Healy who made it two wins in the space of eight days, following up her win in Abbeyknockmoy last week with her 1st place in the Clarenbridge 10km today in 38.34. She was followed closely by another Athenry AC runner, Sinead Foran, who took second position a further 15 seconds back. They were well clear of the 3rd place female & after another close finish it looks like we will see some great battles between these two over the next year.
