What a great day for (watching) racing!
In glorious sunshine this morning, huge numbers of Athenry runners made the short trek to Athlone for the annual Flatline Half Marathon with their eyes on PB's on a fast & flat course. But by the time the race started at 11.00am the mercury was already rising & many struggled with the midday heat.
