Many recorded PBs, thanks to the weather, and the carb-loading of the previous days!

Gary Thornton of GCH continued his dominace of this event with a great performance t take the men's title, while Catherine Conway of Mayo just edged a previous winner, Lucy Brennan, to take the women's title.

Great day, great weather, great organisation, great race - we almost take it for granted by now but it should still be called out - thanks and well done to the good folks of Athenry AC and their volunteer corps on making our St. Stephen's Day so enjoyable once again. Comhghairdeas libh go léir agus go raibh maith agaibh uilig!
