Results of a Race
As always there was a large club turnout for the annual Colemanstown 10k on Saturday. Known for its flat & fast course, the windy weather kept the fast times away last year but there was no such problems this time around with summer-like conditions on offer.
34 members completed the course with Jane Ann Healy (Meehan) taking the honours in the womans race in a time of 38.51 whilst Ray Somers was third man home in a time of 36.24, the fastest 10k time posted by a member this year. Owen Byrne of Galway City Harriers took the win in the mens race.
Over 360 participants took part in the 5K and raised over 5,500 euro for the Claregalway and District Day Care Centre.
In typical Connemara weather, where after 4 hours I still couldn’t figure out which way the wind was blowing (and it was blowing), there were some very impressive times posted across the three distances on offer in Sunday’s Connemarathon.

Congrats to Corrib AC on the first running of their Killannin 8KM last Saturday afternoon.
Full result is here.
Another great turnout by Athenry in New Inn for their 3rd annual 5k.
It was a cracking day out there & the heat caught a few of us by surprise but there were still a few PB's produced. Gearoid Rohan, Ruth Ann Sheahan, Jane Ann Healy & Ronan McCarthy all improved on their 5k times.
Tiernan Burke produced nearly a 2 minute PB with a 20.25 & now has Frank worriedly looking over his shoulder. Bragging rights in the Burke household could be hotly contested come the 5k series I think.
Full results is now attached.
The official results of the 10m County Championships, which formed part of the Craughwell 10m, have now been released & give Athenry a huge haul of medals. Congrats to all.
Congrats to Mairead Blake on her very first podium finish with a third place in the Abbey 10km at the weekend.
Find attached the provisional result from the weekends action in Abbey. Congrats to Declan Donnelly, Gerry Larkin and their crew on a fine, fine race in dry conditions out in deepest East Galway.
