Day 2 of the Connacht Cross Country championships took place yesterday in the scenic grounds of Beleek Woods in Ballina and was hosted by Moy Valley A.C. It was a bright but chilly day and the athletes really enjoyed the experience of running this challenging course.
GCH had two individual medal winners on the day, Fauve Aylmer and Barry Murphy and the U15 girls and U19 Boys brought home team gold.
GCH athletes enjoyed an exhilarating day of cross country running on Day 1 of the Connacht Cross Country Championships hosted by Leitrim Athletics in Calry , Sligo. Those who made the trip will reap the benefits of their efforts as the season progresses. Cross country running is excellent development for strength of both mind and body .
Our Juveniles were in action at Day 2 of the County Cross Country Championships at Bushfield in Loughrea on Sunday. Conditions were perfect with warm sunshine and little wind making it a really enjoyable day for all our athletes , many of whom were competing for the first time. Loughrea A.C. provided an excellent course as expected and the event was well organised by Castlegar AC and East Galway AC.
Day 1 of the County Cross Country Championships took place at Palace Grounds in Tuam in bright sunny conditions on Sunday last. A big thank you to Castlegar AC for setting up a challenging but enjoyable course and to East Galway for providing the results.
The day got off to a fine start with U9s Hannah Boo finishing impressively in 15th place over the 800m distance, her first ever race for the club.
The County Cross Country Championships (Day 1 ) takes place in Tuam on Sunday 6th October. As a result there will be no juvenile training in Dangan for U9 to U12s as athletes and coaches attend this event.
Wishing everyone participating an enjoyable day.
