Mullingar 10 Mile Race

A few of us headed in the direction of Mullingar this Sunday for the annual Mullingar AC 10 mile road race. We knew from my better half Esther, who had participated the previous year, that it actually takes place outside the town of Mullingar in a little place called Dalystown, so Google Maps was our navigator.

Annual Burger Run

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.

If Only - Martin Keane's latest Masters rambles

Many years ago when the children were young, we decided to go on a family holiday. So one morning with the exception of the kitchen sink we loaded everything and everyone into the car and didn't stop going until we landed somewhere in the middle of France. On arriving there we were amazed at the long straight roads and the miles of vineyards growing in the fields. Soon we were to discover that the grapes growing in the region we were in were the ones used in the making of brandy and that the town of Cognac, home to the Hennessy and Martel distilleries, were only an hour’s drive away.

Headford 8KM Result

RedTagTime provided timing services for the 12th running of the Headford 8KM yesterday, Saturday 2 July 2016.  See here and attached!

Over 250 finished in what look like a decent evening's running, over what is not that easy a course.  It is the exactly same route that was employed the first year out back in 2005 and has stood the test of time since!

2016 Headford 8KM Race Report

A week after the Athenry county half marathon it was time for a test over a shorter distance. A good contingent from Athenry AC made the trip to the Headford 8K for this lung buster. The first person I spotted was Marguerite Wilkinson on her warm up, looking fresh after her sub 2 hour half in Monivea the week before.
