Athenry Athletics Club launched their annual 10K Road Race at a function in The Raheen Woods Hotel in the town this week.  The race will take place on the 26th of December next.  The 'Fields of Athenry 10K Road Race' has grown into an important fixture on the road racing scene in the West of Ireland over the last five years, since its inception in 2002.  Last year almost four hundred runners and walkers completed the course around Athenry town on St. Stephen's Day in bright winter sunshine.

There are some small changes planned for this year's event, which should greatly improve the event for all involved.  The race will start and finish in the heart of Athenry town instead of passing through it as in previous years.  This change will allow organisers to provide improved car-parking and other facilities for those taking part.

Entry forms for the race are available on the club's web site at  Although a small number of race entries will be available on the day, the club are asking as many people as possible to pre register for the event as this is a great aid to race organisation.

Enquiries about the race can be made to Mick Rice at (087) 2896989.
