No Corker This Time For Jane Ann...

My marathon report will be brief as so too was my race. I started training in February for Cork with sub 3 in mind. I put in 6 weeks of seventy miles, four of eighty, one of eighty five, 3 new PBs for 13mile, 10mile&10km, hours of stretching and reading but unfortunately only about two hours of training in soaring temperatures and those happened to be in my Cork marathon.

Friday the 29th of May

There will no juvenile training on the 29th of May at the soccer pitch due to the heavily planned athletic weekend ahead. Training will resume as normal next week.

We would like to wish good luck to all our competitors taking part in the schools athletics in Tullamore and also all those competing in the County Community Games in Ballinderreen. Hope ye all do well and don't forget the suncream!!!

Fundraising Run Walk in Kilchreest on Bank Holiday Monday

*** Slight Change in Starting Point - Instead of gathering at the carpark at the Village Inn in Kilchreest people should instead meet at Castledaly Church which is closeby - just to continue through the village of Kilchreest for another three miles 'til you see a church on left-hand side and that is Castledaly Church***.

Organiser Marguerite tell us that for runners it will be about a 10k run and the runners will know they have ran a good workout when they return to the Church.

Loughrea Officials - No Race Without Them

Provisional results from the Loughrea 5km now available at

Another week and another great 5km race to enjoy. As someone said to me in Loughrea last night, "We don't realise how 'spoilt' road runners are in Galway". It certainly was a great night for running in balmy is slightly windy conditions. The organisation was once again superb as the experienced and dedicated Loughrea volunteers and officials provided another opportunity for runners and walkers to test temselves over a challenging course.

Sorry about the's the best I could do on a Tuesday.

As we all know anyone who runs or walks five or more of the Galway 5km Series will qualify for the series souvenir shirt. Well, James Lundon has trawled through the various sets of results and has come up with a list that should reflect the current state of play as regards 'Who's done what?'

See if you can spot your name below and if you spot any inaccuracies perhaps you might let me know at and I'll pass the messages on to James.
