Athenry AC Annual Burger Run takes place on Friday 22nd July at 8pm on the old 10km Fields of Athenry course. It starts about 200 meters from the gates of St. Marys GAA clubhouse in Carnaun and finishes just outside the gates of the complex - one full lap but not into the town, turning right before the level crossing and back out the Tuam Road.

Congrats to our neighbour, Olive Loughnane, on the latest addition to her medal haul.
See here for an interesting breakdown (to the end of May 2016) of clubs and county athlete registrations with the AAI.
It is produced monthly and is published on the AAI web site in its News section.
See here for one of the many articles done before & after the recent Cork Marathon regarding Kay and Joe O'Regan (ex-Kinvara) of Enniscorthy [both proud Slaney Olympic club stalwarts] and their finishing the full distance, both 80. I had the great pleasure of meeting them 5 or 6 years ago out in Connemara after Kay finished that full there. Wonderful people, both full of the joys of life.
Jane Ann has been selected amongst the top female distance runners in the country for the marathon mission panel.

The marathon mission was first launched in the run up to London 2012 and has seen many of our Olympic athletes take part.
