Clifden Lifeboat 10k Race:
From Peter Lyons this morning...
Every year thousands of children from all over Ireland travel to the Community Games National Finals. Previously they have been held in Mosney Co. Meath but 2009 saw a change of venue and Athlone Institute of Technology was selected as the new home.
In total, 13 Athenry area athletes made the short trip up the M6 to Athlone; their results and progress are as follows:
* Girls U8 80M - Sinead Lyons (Athenry A.C.)
Thanks to Michael McGrath for a copy of the results from last Saturday evening's race. I had hopes of travelling but got a late call-up to go off reffing instead. I was looking forward to meeting a namesake of myself from the Ballyhaunis area at the event. Another time, sorry!
Results courtesy of Brendan Monaghan (Tuam AC). It is a lovely idea and one that could be copied by almost any other village or town in the county: who is the fastest local miler!
The race was run as part of the recent Tuam Arts Festival.
A new fit4life term will start on Monday 6th September at 9:30AM from St Colman's National School in Corofin.
There will also be a session at 9:30AM on Wednesday 8th September from the same place.
This course should be perfect for athletes wishing to get themselves fit in time for Christmas, although ALL fitness goals will be accomodated.
Price: 20 Euro
