The Club Away Race was at the Baxter Streets of Casltebar 5k on Saturday 30th May. We had a bus organised from Galway and several members also travelled up under their own steam.

The weather had turned very wet and pretty windy and Aubree was the first to venture out for a warm up. The rest of us took shelter in race HQ at the Tennis Club, postponing the inevitable drenching.

The pressure was really on in Manchester. Not alone had there been a slew of great times posted by GCH runners in Connemara last week but, even worse, Sarah had really upped the ante by posting a spectacular race report during the week. I was, it must be said, at a distinct disadvantage – I did not have a fiancée willing to cycle around the course supporting me and, more importantly, supplying interesting copy for my race report. Not to mention all the glamorous photos of Sarah in full flight.

Another great weekend of racing with the National 10k taking place at the Phoenix Park on Saturday 11th April and the renowned Connemarathon Ultra, Marathon and Half taking place on Sunday 12th April.

On Saturday in Dublin on what is a notoriously hard course especially in the last 5k of the race. This did not deter our GCH athletes who determinedly took to the course to mark their place in this National event!!

Easter weekend brought the sunshine to the West and it was time to put the hard slog of battling wind and rain which was plentiful over the winter season to the test. It was also time to see if our Lenten season sacrifices had paid off!!!

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!!
