Ballycotton 10 No More...Amazing News

We are all in complete shock at the announcement made on the Ballycotton web site last evening.

See here for yourself.  Marches will not be the same any more!

One man's appreciation of the Ballycotton experience.  My 12 mugs were never for drinking - they were too hard earned to risk them on something as trivial as cups of tea or the vagaries of family life ;-).

Colemanstown 10KM Result & Report

From Martina Donnellan:

Full sunshine and near perfect running conditions greeted all participants on the last day of September as a field of 80 participants lined up for the rescheduled Colemanstown 10k. As customary, a big crew from Athenry AC were present with 21 members appearing at the start line. The majority of this group are targeting October marathons either in Dublin or Frankfurt which both take place on the 29th Oct. There was also good representation from GCH, Tuam, Corofin, Ballinasloe as well as Moy Valley in Ballina.

Congrats to all athletes - especially local to Athenry - who qualified from yesterday's (Tuesday, 19 September) semi-finals. 

The provisional results for all East and West, Junior and Senior, Girls and Boys races are attached as a PDF.

Thanks to all who helped out to make this year's races the biggest ever, with over 1500 kids competing across the 8 races.

Finals are next Tuesday (26 Setpember at noon) in Renmore, Nolan Park.  A great early-afternoon's entertainment is guaranteed.

Upcoming road races

Along with the Cross Country, there are a large number of local permitted road races in the offing, starting with Loughrea 10KM this weekend.  

Then the re-scheduled Colemanstown 10KM.  

Then the Galway Bay (10KM, Half and Full) races (mostly sold out now).

Then the Carna and Moylough 10KMs on the same weekend in mid-October.

No excuses.
