BAAC’s inaugural HammerFest took place in glorious weather on Thursday 28th April at Antrim Forum. With a plentiful supply of hammers four different clubs were represented; Abbey, Mid-Ulster, Shercock & BAAC. With the heel-toe brigade topping fourteen athletes results were good and five of the athletes scored new pb’s. Special mention go to Andrew Doyle (Mid-Ulster) and Robert Moffett (BAAC) as both moved closer to achieving international qualification standards.
Many thanks to the coaches for running a great event, looking forward to the same again in 2012.
On Thursday 28th April, Ballymena & Antrim AC will be hosting the first ever HammerFest, a celebration of all things Hammer. For young & old, experienced and novice, anyone can come along and heel-toe a steel ball around their head.
Hammering starts at 18:30 at the Antrim Forum Athletics Track, see the attached flyer for all the details.

On an unseasonably warm and sunny April Saturday, the Race over the Glens 2010 finally broke ground. After 2 false starts for snow, ice, wind & rain, not even an Icelandic Volcano was going to stop it this time. And despite the unusually tropical conditions, Ballymena & Antrim dominated the race and the prize-giving once again.
