Racing can be quiet in the summer due to holidays and small heatwaves but we had a few members taking part in races locally and afar earning some pbs along the way.
Well done to Aoife Mullane, Brian Matthews and Colm McAllen who took part in the Longford half and full marathon in early August finishing in great times despite the humid conditions.
Big congrats to Noel Gorman who earned a Pb in the Claregalway 10k hosted by Clare river harriers recently. Rena Deely, Piotr Prokop, Frank Byrne and Helena Gorman also took part in the race and finished in great times.
A large number of our members took part in the streets of Galway 8k hosted by Galway city harriers. Well done to all who took part especially to Noel Gorman, Brian Matthews and Stephen Carty who earned a Pb in the 8k distance.
In early July a few of our members travelled to take part in the Roscommon 10 mile. Well done to Rena Deely, Kieran O Leary, John Fitzpatrick, Niamh Ni Flavin, Colm McAllen and Marie Rooney who completed the course leaving with some very nice technical tshirts.
