The seventh running of the Kilconieron 5 Mile Charity Road Race takes place at noon on Sunday 22nd February 2015. This year the chosen charity is Athenry Cancer Care, a local based charity dedicated to helping patients of cancer and their families to cope when cancer strikes. Every cent raised goes directly to providing services to cancer patients in the immediate local area.
Welcome to our new feature, Wind Back Wednesdays where we reprint a report from the depths of the Athenry AC newsreel. We start off this week with a Mick Rice account of his Ballycotton 2006 race. Enjoy.
