Lost and Found: Timex Ironman Watch

Some more pictures

Here are some pictures of the race from near the start/mile 9.  These were taken by.. someone's dad!  Interesting thing about the above is that even though it appears to be right at the start.. no sign of Gerry Ryan already!  He must have headed off like the clappers. Rest of the pictures are here.

Almost there – hopefully all the training went well for you and that most of you will make the start line.  The mixed team event looks like it will be a close-fought affair, with Mayo AC, GCH and Athenry all having strong teams and Craughwell's in with an outside chance too.
