Our young athletes had their first experience of competing on a snow covered cross country course today in Tymon park. The white surroundings certainly lifted the spirits and the performances. Great running by Evie, Cara and Ellie (under 10 girls ) got the day under way for us in fine style, followed immediately with great running from Senan, Edward and Canice in the boys race.
In the under 11 races Rion, Matthew, Max and Sean ran strongly.
Amelia and Lelia were very competitive in the under 12 girls race, Pearl, Jessica, Maggie, Saoirse, Freya, Caroline and Daire were all prominent in the under 13 races.
Ella, Abigail and Hugh battled well in the under 14 races, Goda, Erin and Aimee ran well under 15, lily, Cliodhna and Christopher rounded off out snowy day out in style in the older age groups.
Our senior womens team of Sorcha, Aoife, Edel and Orla ran their hearts out in the intermediate womens 5k and won the team event with Sorcha finishing 1st overall.
Thank you to the parents who brought and supported all the children today. Thanks also to those who helped with the numbers and the officiating.
