until Fields of Athenry 10km 2016

9 in the final? Alan - you're losing it...

At the Huntsman yesterday, I was telling anybody who would listen [including anybody listening to Galway Bay FM!] that 9 men would be in the 200m final.

We watched the second semi to see in Pauls time of 20:38 would be quicker than the 5th place runner in that semi.
As it turn out it wasn't.

But just to prove that I wasn't completely making it up.

Claregalway 10KM Results

Bernie Kelly cleaning up again!

Full results from the Claregalway 10KM are attached herein!

A record attendance of over 200 lined up. Just think of the crowd there would have been except for the utterly deplorable weather that afternoon, and more importantly, during the race itself.

A goodly number of PBs were recorded nonetheless.

Many thanks to the organising committee in Clare River Harriers for the race and the many refreshments afterwards.

Paul Hession Goes For Glory!

Another Update!

He's through! Paul won his second round heat in some style posting 20.32.

We'll be back to the Huntsman to roar him on!
Dan's bar and Ray Glynn's bar in Athenry will the place to be from 2pm!

Paul has a good draw and the easier[!] of the semis .
[Not that it will be easy at all!]

Peter Delmer - Media Darling

The fella can't lift his leg at The Streets without some snapper taking a picture of him. T'was the Irish Times three years ago and now it's the Galway Independent this time. In fact that Irish Times image finished up in their book of that particular year, 2004 or, perhaps, 2005.

Yes, I'm jealous...

The Claregalway 10km Road Race takes place next Saturday evening at 6.00pm from the Claregalway Leisure Centre and will incorporate the Co.Galway 10km Championship. The race is sponsorred by Royal Rock and will raise much needed funds for the Galway Hospice, with Euro 5.00 of each entry fee going to that cause. This race has been a firm favourite with runners from all over the West of Ireland over the last number of years and it's not difficult to understand why.
