Moylough 10KM Result and Report

A very fine afternoon greeted the runners for the 4th iteration of the Moylough (North East Galway) 10KM on Sunday (12 October).  A good quality race ensured with 22 of the participants breaking 40 minutes, including our own Ronan 'Speedy' McCarthy, for the first time.  Very warm congratulations to him on this fine achievement.  Some PBs were recorded by others in the club, including Mark Hannon who was until very recenrly worried about breaking 40, and who is now down into the 37s!!!!!

Ruthann In Chile

Our resident ultra loving adventurer Ruthann Sheahan is currently in the depths of South America taking part in the Atacama Crossing, a 136 mile self sufficient race across some of the most inhospitable terrain in the world & the driest place on earth, the Atacama Desert. In her own words, a seven day self catering holiday. In our words, simply bloody amazing.
