Autumn open update

Our junior/senior women and Pierre were in action at the Autumn open cross country in Abbottstown on Sunday after the juvenile races. Celine Gavin was an impressive 2nd in the junior women’s race behind a Leevale athlete. The junior women ran 3 laps over 4500m . The senior women ran 4 laps over 6k with Cliona Murphy leading our team with a very good run followed by Jodie, Lauren, Edel, Aoife and Aislinn. Tough outing but good to see everyone out doing their best.
Pierre had a great run over 5 laps and great to see him fighting his way back finishing 4th in a quality field.
Well done to everyone. A big thank you to those who helped taking down the poles and ropes around the course after the races .

Well done to Goda, Aoibhinn, Erin, Aimee, Aoibhinn and Jocelyn. Finn finished in the top 20 in the boys race and with a bit of training could be a top cross country runner.
