I reckon we could field a couple of teams for the race in the "Fields" on 26/12. What do you think?
The Athenry AC 10k race will take place on the 26th of December next. The "Fields of Athenry 10K Road Race" has grown into an important fixture on the road racing scene in the West of Ireland over the last five years, since its inception in 2002. Last year almost four hundred runners and walkers completed the course around Athenry town on St. Stephen's Day in bright winter sunshine.
There are some small changes planned for this year's event, which should greatly improve the event for all involved. The race will start and finish in the heart of Athenry town instead of passing through it as in previous years. This change will allow organisers to provide improved car-parking and other facilities for those taking part.
