2018 Senior Cross Country Championship

4 Nov 2018

Well done to our Senior runners yesterday competing in the Senior Cross Country County Championships in Kilmacow. 2nd place in the men’s 10,000m went to Niall Sheehan. It was Dean Rowe and Shane Noonan’s first time to compete in this County Senior race and they both placed well up the field. College student, Cormac Buggy followed suit keeping it steady finishing in 11th, the exact same position as last year. Our Club team came 2nd, just three points short of 1st place.

The women’s race equally had a large field of 32. Catriona Corr was our 1st lady home in 9th position. Catriona ran a steady race and successfully powered home to hold off KCH on her heels. Despite running Dublin City marathon last weekend Claire McDonald ran a superb debut Cross Country race. Reliable club runners Kathryn and Siobhan put in a mighty effort throughout the 4000m. The standard was very high and unfortunately they just missed out on the medals coming 4th Club team.
