St. Stephen's Day brought the, by now traditional, Fields of Athenry, flooded roads, chilly conditions and gale force winds.  Actually there was no gale force wind and it showed in some superb performances.  Matt Bidwell led the GCH challenge home with a fantastic sub 32 minute run and a 3rd place overall finish.  Martin Kearney not only secured his first top 50 t-shirt but also ran a 10km PB for good measure.  Niall Murphy also ran his best Fields yet to secure one of those sought after t-shirts.  Club stalwart Seamus Coyne had, literally, the 10km run of his life to also run a PB.
