Well they went and did it again! With the combination of the amazing trio of John McGrath, Alan O’Connor and Ted Flannelly making a huge team effort together to the front of the pack, along with Pat O’Callaghan also battling away they brought home the Gold Masters County Team medal! Huge efforts also from John Kent, Emmett Malone and Gavin Kelly.
With a repeat run of their Senior race they finished together, with John claiming an impressive individual Silver, Alan Bronze, Ted 4th but won the Over 50 category. Fantastic to watch.
Aedan Rogers also battled away in the rain and muck of Lingstown to claim Silver in the Junior Men, which is run with the mens race. Impressive running along side the Senior men.
Elaina Browne claimed Gold in the Junior Women, which is run with the womens race. Another great opportunity. We’re super proud Elaina.
We also had 2 teams in the Masters Ladies. With a competitive field medals were hard to come by on the day, but brilliant running with some strong home run sprints. Huge congrats to Sonya Byrne, Catherine Ronan, Lettie Roche, Beth O’Connor, Sinead Donovan and Aine Cullen. Special mention to Catherine Ronan who was unlucky to come in contact with the muck but up she got and ran a great race to finish barely outside of a category medal position. The ups and downs of cross country. Great day for the club.
Missing from the photo is Lettie Roche and Elaina Browne – sorry guys.
