Monivea 'Run in the Woods' 5KM & 10KM Results and Report

Many thanks to all who attended this year's Run in the Woods on Saturday, 5 September (eve of 2015 All-Ireland Hurling Final). With the 10km being a new addition, we figured numbers would be a little low but it certainly wasn't lacking in talent or spirit. A fabulous bunch of athletes entered what was a very challenging route right through the heart of the woods.
In the 5km the attendance was good and in particular with an increase in Junior entrants this year.

Did you know that more than two-thirds of fatal pedestrian collisions happen at night? Although you can hear a car coming and see its lights, the driver may not see you (and certainly won’t hear you).

Club Handicap 10KM Result and Report

The 10th running of Athenry AC's Guess-Your-Own-Time/Handicap/Burger Run 10KM Championship took place on Friday, 24 July 2015.

James Corbett and his now usual band of helpers clicked into action at race HQ, St. Mary's GAA grounds out in Carnuan.

A record crowd of 45 toed the line at 8PM, to take in the old Fields 10KM course (with slight modifications, primarily the taking out of the level crossing, which this year was a very good idea as the gates in hte town came down as the 45 minute runners were coming through).
