Our five race no-frills Series continues on Tuesday (24th June) with race 2 at Castlebar. Registration from 6:30 – 7.50pm at Harlequin Hotel. Local parking available at Aldi, Tesco, Dunnes etc.  The race start is at the roundabout near Aldi/McDonalds. It starts at 8pm sharp and then the field heads off around the measured and permitted Lough Lannagh circuit. This course is almost all traffic free and the various lakeside paths will be well marked and marshaled. The local Fit4Life group are race organisers and they ask participants to get there early. Those who have entered the five races are reminded to bring the bib number there got at Ballyhaunis. There are loads of photos from Ballyhaunis up on our facebook pages so have a look there.  Some were out at the week-end warming up for Castlebar 5k and also Irishtown Padraic Cullina 8k on Sunday next. Well done to Tracy Durkan who was first woman home at Aghagower 5k with a 22:33 finish. There were a few parkrun pbs on the Lough Lannagh paths ahead of Tues eve – Mick Foy 20;38, Aoife Ludden 24:49 and Angeal McVann 24:08 – they’ll all be looking to get even better times in more competitive company on Tuesday. And so will you! 

Ballyhaunis Meet & Train group got the first race off to a great start on Tuesday evening last. They were led by Martin Fitzmaurice and his team and did a great job on a very hot evening with online results available within a couple of hours.It was 21°C down the road at the local Met station at 8pm as over 190 lined up. Last year the first race heralded beginning of the long hot summer. Let’s hope ….
