As always there was a large club turnout for the annual Colemanstown 10k on Saturday. Known for its flat & fast course, the windy weather kept the fast times away last year but there was no such problems this time around with summer-like conditions on offer.
34 members completed the course with Jane Ann Healy (Meehan) taking the honours in the womans race in a time of 38.51 whilst Ray Somers was third man home in a time of 36.24, the fastest 10k time posted by a member this year. Owen Byrne of Galway City Harriers took the win in the mens race.
We had members taking part in marathons across the continent in recent weeks with Philp Magnier & George Livanos running the Paris Marathon and Tony Killarney, Jim Leahy, Frances Leahy, Maeve Noone & Kenneth O' Hara running the London Marathon.
George ran a decent 3.46.30 whilst Philip struggled with illness & finished with a 4.02.28.
Lyall Guiney has shared his report on his brilliant run in Connemara recently. This can also be found on his blog Race the Blue Line.
Peter Delmer [co-founder of Athenry AC (Senior)] got married to the lovely Dympna last Friday!
Long life and much happiness to both.
