Annaghdown 10K Summer Solstice Race - 2010

[acidfree:3822 title=" " rotate=right size=150 align=right]The 4th annual Annaghdown 10K summer solstice run will follow the calendar again this year and takes place on Monday, 21st June at 7:30pm starting from Annaghdown national school.

This is another great race on the local calendar and deserves our support. It is run over a nice fast course, on quiet tree-lined country roads and finishes with a long sweeping descent to Annaghdown pier. The brave and the foolhardy usually cool down afterwards with a dip in the water at the pier.

Galway 5K Series 2010 - Claregalway

[acidfree:3795 title=" " rotate=right size=120 align=right]And so the rain came to the 5K series. We probably deluded ourselves 3 weeks ago in Athenry by claiming that the evening had dried up before the racing commenced, and last week in Craughwell sure weren't we all home and hosed before it really came wet. Tonight was a different bag of cats altogether. It was (very) wet all evening around Galway, what could be described as a soft Irish summer's evening.
