A massive congrats to almost 20 GCHers that took part in the 36th Dublin City Marathon 2015 held on Monday 26th October. It was not the most ideal of conditions for 26.2 miles but it didn’t make much of a difference to our brilliant GCH athletes with many coming home with PB’s and even some new silver wear for their efforts.

[acidfree:11207 title=" " size=750 align=center] Clare River Harriers never fail to put on a great race and 2015 didn’t disappoint with a well organised and exciting race at yesterday evenings Claregalway 10k. Flat for the most of this course this always brings home PB’s and is a target race for most athletes at the end of the Summer racing or for those targeting the Dublin City Marathon. Despite a very wet evening, the race was yet again a great success!!

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.
