St. Patrick’s weekend this year was filled with sunshine and so the runners came out in all their glory......all the training in wind, rain, sleet and snow paid off as some fantastic performances ensued.

In the Abbey 10k, Larry Kelly won the Male O40 in 38.12 and was 5th overall, Danny Carr stormed home as first MO50 and in 6th place in 38.25. Sinead Brody was first lady on the button in 40.00 and 11th overall. A storming performance by all!!

And they're off and running (well, jogging anyway) in the 2015 GCH club challenge.  After one of the most successful GCH cross country seasons in years XC fatigue set in and the opening event of the Club challenge (Inter-club XC) had no GCH competitors.  However, the first bonus event of the challenge did see 2 GCHers travel south for one of the stars in the Irish road racing calendar, Ballycotton 10.

Many runners log their miles using a GPS-enabled watch. The map below shows the areas in Galway that have been most logged for running. Dark blue means it's a route used a lot, and red used even more. Cappagh Rd (Parkrun), The Prom, Dangan and the racecourse are all heavily logged. A similar view is available for biking routes, or biking and running combined:
