The 6th Allianz Annual Resolution Run took place last Friday – New Year’s Day. The race had its largest entry to date with 428 registrations. There was a great mix of athletes from national clubs and the many families who made the run. On the plus side, the weather was much improved from last year making it all more cheerful!
There was great support from RGC and Monivea RFC parents who volunteered to marshal at over 25 junctions along the route.
Refreshments for all those taking part were organised and served by some very willing and helpful RGC mums – Martha Molloy, Carmel Mahon, Sylvia McDonagh, Breda Smyth, Anne-Celine Donohoeand and Carol Hynes.
Special thanks to Clada Group
and Ursula Owens
who kindly sponsored the race water. Also Paul Shaughnessy and Dyna Signs
for their generous sponsorship.
Marshals on the day who braved the elements:
John Donohoe, Philip Harkin, Gerry Carty, Donagh McCabe, Eilish Zalatel,Paul Shaughnessy, Madeline Mc Loughlin, Pauline Murray, Sarah Tracy, Mary O Byrne, Grainne O Byrne ,Rob Fuller, Gerry Gillick, Helena Broderick, Elena Harkin, Ollie Fagan, Martin Coffey, Julia Sayers, Matthew Bidwell and John Molloy
The race could not have taken place without the many volunteers support and especially the hard working committee who spent many hours planning and co-ordinating it beforehand – Philip Harkin , John Molloy, Tony Killarney, Paul Shaughnessy, John Donohoe and James Quirke.
Many thanks again for making the 2016 Allianz Resolution Run the most successful yet. All proceeds to go towards gym equipment.
