The Fields of Athenry 10km

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.

The Gingerbread Run - Mary Rohan tells her story!

20th Nov 2016, Portarlington, Laois.

Leaving Athenry Sunday morning it was minus 3°C and by the time we hit Portarlington the temperature hadn't risen, in fact it was now extremely foggy and felt colder. I had initially planned to run the half marathon but decided at registration to switch to the 10km as my training was a little haphazard and I was feeling under the weather... this had nothing to do with the cold conditions!
