Just a word of thanks and congratulations to everyone involved in the organisation & running of and participation in the National Half Marathon in Athenry yesterday, 2 September 2012.

Much more will appear about the day on other sites and this is a holding article until such time as we get around to sifting through the results and photos and Facebook and tweets and whatever-you-are-having-yourself etc.

I will leave you with a picture of pure joy, Judith Roche (Loughrea AC) winner of the W60 national title yesterday, with some local bald fella!

P.S. Congrats to our PRO, Philip Magnier, of a fantastic 2nd in the M60 in a very respectable 1:37ish.

The key breakaway by the eventual winner coming up th hill to the 6M mark!
