Kinvara Rock & Road 2016 Result & Report

Kinvara Rock & Road 2016 Result & Report

Kinvara was buzzing on Saturday morning for the annual 10K and half marathon held in the beautiful
south Galway seaside village. The half marathon is now recognised as a truly well organised and
tough training race for anyone heading to Manchester, Rotterdam and even Milan! For the rest of us it
was the first test of the year to see if the Jan and Feb training was reaping any benefits.

Bert Glynn 4M Result

A nice morning (Saturday, 27 February) for a last long run before Ballycotton this weekend.  

Congrat to Tara Glynn on a well organised romp around the Dave Huane-inspired 4M circuit around Ballindine.  It was in memory of the lady's father who died last year at a very young age and was to raise funds for a local medical initiative.  I believe nearly E2K was gathered together as a result.

The result of the race can be found here.
