County Novice, Intermediate, Munster Novice and Autumn Open XC:
We had two individual medal winners in in the past few weeks. Tony is now the county intermediate XC champion after his win in Ballynoe at the weekend and John Spelman took the Munster U23 bronze in Cooraclare. Well done lads.
We were fourth in a few team events missing out by small margins but the Novice men did take Silver medals at the Munsters. Well done to John, Ciaran, Michael and Matt. Stephen supervised the proceedings in his capacity as club captain.
In the Autumn Open XC held in Abbotstown Michael Harty had a great race to finish a close second behind Eoin Everard, showing again he is in great shape for the upcoming Munster Seniors and Nationals. Paul Hartnett was 11th overall in the Senior race with Tony not far behind in 18th. Ciaran got some great big race exposure finishing 35th.
Tim had a tough day in the office in Dublin. Despite running 2:26.50 Tim had ran a race of two halves. After going through in just over 68 mins for the 13.1 miles and right on track for a strong PB, the wheels came off (similar to his support crew!) and it was a struggle home from there. On the positive side there were no injuries so hopefully he will be able to reload for the National Seniors in a few weeks on fresher legs.
