Dublin uneven age cross country was held over a tough but interesting course in Citywest today. First into action were Juliette, Rion andAoife in the under 11 race. Juliette ran an outstanding race finishing 7th, Rion and Aoife also ran great over the 1500m distance for the first time. Ellen was very disappointed to miss the race as she was sick.
Our under 13 girls had high expectations and were rewarded with a 2nd place team medal , led in with a superb 2nd place for Jessica. Amelia ran herself to a standstill finishing 12th. Pearl was next in with a great run and close behind was Lelia. The two Saoirses, Caroline and Freya battled for every place and all helped win that team silver. Girls , you all should be so proud!!
Daire and Tom were competitive all the way in the boys under 13 and are learning from every race , great running lads.
Goda ran a smart race under 15 over 3500m and finished strongly in 2nd place overall. Hugh ran up an age group in the boys under 15 and stuck in very well in his first 3500m !
In the under 19 girls Cliodhna was up an age group but finished a very good 4th , with Clare 12th and Summer not far behind finished 3rd team overall. Christopher ran a fine race finishing 13th in the 6k under 19.
Our women won the team event in the senior race with Jodie, Faye, Alison, Cliona, Emer and Aoife on the team. Pierre was an impressive 2nd in the senior mens race.
