Busy weekend for Boyle Athletic Club

Boyle Athletic Clubg members were busy last weekend.

On Saturday members hit for Strandhill Co. Sligo, home of The Warriors Run to participate in one of Ireland’s toughest competitive races.

The Warriors Run takes competitors from the Cannon Gun at the beachfront in Strandhill to the top of Knocknarea, around Queen Maeve’s Cairn and back to the beachfront again.

Despite the endurance trait of the race, each year around 1100+ runners take part, some of whom wore the bright yellow of Boyle AC.
