A fantastic day in Monivea, on Saturday 25 June 2016, for the first running of the Athenry AC Half Marathon. It also featured the Galway AAI Half Marathon championship. Both full provisional results are attached.
Congrats to all in the club, especially Patrick Forde as race director, on an excellent event.
Larry Morgan Photography was there to capture the event in its totality. Check his work out on Facebook.
Congrats to the organisers on reaching 10 with their running of a series of permitted races out in Annaghdown on Sunday, 19 June. I was very sorry to miss it, having competed in all previous 9. It was not to be on what looked like a really difficult day for racing - both my car and the Limerick hurlers let me down very badly that day. Deirdre Brophy (Athenry AC) was the first woman how in a time very close to 40 minutes. Congrats.
Screengrabs of the 10KM result and prize winners is attached.
Here's to the next 10 iterations.

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.
