A nice number of medals are coming back to Athenry AC...young and not so young ;-).
Pride of place goes to Aine O'Farrell (of this parish) who won the 5KM in 19:24. A long road career is in front of this young woman! The first four women were all Athenry AC.
Yvonne Fehily won the 10KM which took place 30 minutes after the start of the 5KM.

30th CLAREGALWAY 10K Road Race/Fun Run/Walk - Saturday 26-Aug-2017 at 6pm
2017 saw the 32nd year of the Streets of Galway road race. Just over 50 from the club joined another 2,450 athletes to run the very familiar 8km loop around the streets of Galway. This race is well know for its great local support and this year was no different as supports were interspersed along the route to encourage the athletes along the way! The weather was very pleasant for the supporters but the athletes found it warm! The now traditional wind was also reported along the prom for the last leg of the race.
Results from second annual Cappataggle 8KM (Saturday, 29 July) attached as PDF. Photos are here with EdenHill77.

Please be warned the the full marathon has now sold out and that the 10KM is about to do so.
There are still some entries in the half, but for how long...
