There has been some debate over the last few weeks about whether or not Maree had ousted Tuam as the PB course of the series but after last night’s event that debate is certainly put to bed. Athenry had another great turn out for the race with 79 members racing, 64 of whom set seasons bests times with many of those also setting PB’s.
