The 11th iteration of the new infamous Burger Run successfully place around the old Athenry 10KM course last evening, Friday, 23 July 2016.
Thirty six hardy souls toed the start line shortly after 8PM under the watchful eye of starter, Mick Rice. James Corbett again laid out the logistics, refreshments and prizes, with the expert help of MTB & BAW as well as young Michael & Sean Rice. John O'Connor was there to capture the event! A full album will follow on Flickr's 77EdenHill in due course.
All the runners had to do was turn up and run, which some did faster than others. No one got lost either, thankfully.
Damien Larkin (how could anyone forget him?) of Craughwell AC was first home in a speedy 37:25, followed closely by another Craughwell AC guest, young Jack Miskella. Athenry were delighted to have guests from both Craughwell AC and Tuam AC at the event.
A result could not be finalised until such time as everyone was home and hosed, as this is an event where even the last on the road can be first on the podium. As it was, most of the winners were the mid-packers, as the attached result shows when it is sorted by finishing time and not by absolute time difference.
The main winners were Kieran Guiry (AAC male), Caroline Moore (AAC female) and Joe Coyle (Craughwell AC guest...and pride of Belmullet).
