Carramore hosted their annual 10k Road Race last Saturday evening. The rain held off for the duration and the race was a great success, with a large contingent of Galway athletes making the trip to this excellent race. Mayo AC had a great night out at the races filling the first three places in the senior men's results and Catherine Conway also claimed the women's senior title.

The C Team - Cancer Survivors are running in the relay section of the Cork City Marathon on Monday June 1st 2009. The C Team - Cancer Survivors is a very special and unique relay team. Each of the members is a survivor of cancer.
In this age when everyone is running to try and beat their times at various distances (especially during the Galway 5km series) it was a refreshing change when we found out that the timing machine was not able to provide runners times during the event!
Another absolutely beautiful evening in Craughwell was a gift from heaven for Galway 'fitness freaks' last night. The small roads that suround the beautiful East Galway town were thronged with cotton and lycra clad runners and walkers of all varieties. It was quickly clear that there would be a large turnout given that the local club were accepting 'one off' entries on the night. The increased numbers on the night only served to increase the sense of excitement and anticipation amongst the assembled crowd.
