The Allianz 5km Resolution Run which takes place on the 1st of January is a popular annual event. Numbers have grown since the inaugural race in 2010. This year 291 athletes ran the 5km route, starting at Nimmos Pier and finishing under the Spanish Arch after completing two 2.5km loops. The weather was perfect, dry with sunshine and blue skies! Spectators gathered along the route to cheers and encourage the athletes. Keith Fallon of GCH was the first person to cross the line, recording an impressive 16:06.

This years race was sponsored by Hygeia and we are very grateful for their support. Race Director Jim Leahy and his committee organised yet another very successful event. Now in its 15th year The Fields of Athenry 10km attracted 1031 athletes who took on the single loop of the 10km route which started at the train station and finished under the famous Arch. Weather conditions were perfect as we experienced the calm after storm Barbara! A headwind was reported for the first 4km after which the athletes experienced gentler and more pleasant weather as the sun appeared and it remained dry.
Please find attached a PDF (5.34MB) of the race booklet which was available at the race for free.
