Mighty weather altogether over the weekend and very favourable conditions for racing or training runs, or building sand castles. Ballinrobe 10k seems to have been a successful race for a number of members. Well done to John Byrne 32:25, Anto Devaney 36:37 who were first and third in fast times, with Sean McLoughlin Westport Tri second in 34:10. GCH runners came home first and second in the women’s race – Regina Casey 36:50, Siobhan Egan 39:08, with Kathy Gleeson (Claremorris) third in 39:31 – more evidence that she is in great form following her recent return to racing. Well done to all our other Mayo AC finishers including Matthew Gill 39:45, Reiltin Shaw 45:43, Tim Ganley 47:40 and Maria Nolan 51:57, and congratulations to a couple of pbs – Mairead Cafferkey 45:57 and Ambrose Gaughan 40:50.
