Despite the day starting with rain, numbers were up this year for the “Winning Ways” 8k held today (Sunday, 4 November 2012) in Corofin. Local clubs were again well represented as were all age groups. First place went to Niall Cunningham with Bernie Mulryan of Athenry AC the first lady to finish.

I’m not normally one for writing race reports – I love reading them though. However, post-marathon, I have been reflecting a lot on the weeks, months and years that led up to Marathon-Monday and I figured why not.
The official count of Athenry AC runners at Dublin in 2012 is 50. An amazing number for a small town. Each runner is listed in categories below, First Timers, PBs, others.

** Official result attached - 6 November 2012 **
The square in Gort was bathed in unseasonably warm October sunshine when 160 hardy souls took off for the inaugural Gort RFC 10k run on Sunday last (21 October), in aid of the club & Spinal Injuries Ireland. The route took runners around the square, through Ballyhugh, Sheeaun and back into Gort via the Tubber road, with the Burren in the foreground for the first half, and Slieve Aughty in view for the second half of the race.
