News for senior members and athletes
[acidfree:901 size=300] GCH track sessions continue tomorrow, Saturday, in Dangan at 11am.
Last Saturday saw the first of three sessions, organised by club chairman Pat O'Dwyer, take place. 2007 National 10k T&F Champion Gary was on hand to lend his track expertise to many new GCH members. The morning was thoroughly enjoyed by all and finished off with a relay team competition. More good fun is promised tomorrow and everyone is welcome.
The Galway Senior Track & Field events will kick off next Thursday 19th June in Dangan. They will follow the very popular format initiated last year and are open to all AAI registered athletes - both seasoned campaigners and those new to T&F. GCH hopes to have a big contingent trying their hand at the various events on offer. Full details are in the attached flyer.

Congrats to all GCH athletes who took part in the National 10k in Athenry last Sunday. GCH had two gold medal winners in the Masters categories. Brian Geraghty and Adrienne Walsh took top honours in their categories. Also, both Martin McEvilly and Bernie Kelly won silver in their categories.
GCH had 27 club members compete on the day, contributing strongly to one of the largest ever fields to take part in the National 10k event. Athenry AC hosted a superb event which was enjoyed by all.
The Irish Masters Athletes Association has just published their newsletter the IMAA Gazette. Edited by Philip Magnier it offers some great reading on the Masters athletics scene and includes a profile by Philip on GCH stalworth Martin McEvilly.
