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.
