Athenry Go Global

It's turning into a busy few weeks for Athenry members on the international stage with many of our members hitting the skies to take part in some of the biggest races worldwide.

This Sunday, 06th April, Philp Magnier & George Livanos will be lining up alongside nearly 50,000 other participants in France for the Marathon de Paris.

New Inn 5K Race Result

Another great turnout by Athenry in New Inn for their 3rd annual 5k.

It was a cracking day out there & the heat caught a few of us by surprise but there were still a few PB's produced. Gearoid Rohan, Ruth Ann Sheahan, Jane Ann Healy & Ronan McCarthy all improved on their 5k times.

Tiernan Burke produced nearly a 2 minute PB with a 20.25 & now has Frank worriedly looking over his shoulder. Bragging rights in the Burke household could be hotly contested come the 5k series I think.

Full results is now attached.

After some horrendous wind & rain in midweek, Sunday morning dawned as fresh & perfect as a spring day could be. The vast blue sky was looking stupendous, the myriad of daffodils lining the roadside were looking voluptuous & the post race spread greeting us as we lined up for our timing chips & t-shirts was looking sumptuous.
