Kinvara Rock & Road 2016 Result & Report

Kinvara Rock & Road 2016 Result & Report

Kinvara was buzzing on Saturday morning for the annual 10K and half marathon held in the beautiful
south Galway seaside village. The half marathon is now recognised as a truly well organised and
tough training race for anyone heading to Manchester, Rotterdam and even Milan! For the rest of us it
was the first test of the year to see if the Jan and Feb training was reaping any benefits.

Bert Glynn 4M Result

A nice morning (Saturday, 27 February) for a last long run before Ballycotton this weekend.  

Congrat to Tara Glynn on a well organised romp around the Dave Huane-inspired 4M circuit around Ballindine.  It was in memory of the lady's father who died last year at a very young age and was to raise funds for a local medical initiative.  I believe nearly E2K was gathered together as a result.

The result of the race can be found here.

Athenry AC Abroad

There was some running in the sun done at the weekend, but not around the roads of Athenry...or even Ireland for that matter. We had 2 members strecthing their legs in some far reaches of the earth.

Kilconieron 5 mile Road Race - 21st February

Kilconieron 5 mile charity run is now in its 8th year. The numbers were down from last year (172) with 121 dedicated athletes registering to brave the elements (including 17 from Athenry AC). Temperatures held at a pleasant 12 degrees with a light drizzle but it was evident that the strength of the wind was going to be a factor in this race.

Results of Inter-Counties XC in Tuam

Great day in Tuam, yesterday 14 February 2016.  We have everything except competitors: sun, snow and muck in particular.

Glaway cleared the boards with the men bringing back the O'Duffy Cup to Galway for the first time since 1986-87, with the woman also winning their senior title.  Both Galway junior teams were second to Mayo in their respective races.

See here for a full report on proceedings.

Gorgeous Gort 8k Result

Maree AC 8km - 7th February 2016

Howling gale-force winds on the back of storms Dessie, Barney and Henry, driving Galway rain coming in from the west,
the east, the north, the south, the south-west and the north-east, not forgetting the sub-zero temperatures akin to the
Antarctic in mid-Winter. I just knew when I woke up on Sunday morning that this was going to be the best race EVER!
And so it transpired......

Trim AC Bewleys 10 mile Road Race - 7th February 2016

Trim AC Bewleys 10 mile Road Race took place today. The race was on the same course as last year which is on fast flat quiet roads (with some hills at 3, 6 and 8 segments) starting and finishing in Trim. Over 650 athletes lined up in harsh weather conditions. Temperatures were low but it was dry, very strong headwinds were reported from mile 4 which remained for the duration of the race. Two water stations along the route provide brief respite for the athletes.
