Since the last Club Challenge update we've had the National Road Relays and the Club Away race. These events introduced several new names into the Club Challenge league and has changed the front end of the leaderboards.

Martin Kearney jumped into the lead in the Men's league and Majella Ní Chríocháin leads in the Women's league just one point ahead of GCH Chairperson Mags Sheridan.

The Club Away Race was at the Baxter Streets of Casltebar 5k on Saturday 30th May. We had a bus organised from Galway and several members also travelled up under their own steam.

The weather had turned very wet and pretty windy and Aubree was the first to venture out for a warm up. The rest of us took shelter in race HQ at the Tennis Club, postponing the inevitable drenching.

The pressure was really on in Manchester. Not alone had there been a slew of great times posted by GCH runners in Connemara last week but, even worse, Sarah had really upped the ante by posting a spectacular race report during the week. I was, it must be said, at a distinct disadvantage – I did not have a fiancée willing to cycle around the course supporting me and, more importantly, supplying interesting copy for my race report. Not to mention all the glamorous photos of Sarah in full flight.

The National 10k in the Phoenix Park on April 11th was the 3rd event in the GCH Club Challenge 2015. It proved to be a high scoring day in the challenge with 9 participants collecting the 30point medal bonus and two collecting the 10k PB bonus.

In both the mens and women's tables three of the top four slots are taken by our masters runners reflecting very strong national performances by this element of our club.
