GCH Club Challenge 2014 Results (Event 14 - Round 1)

Round 1 of the penultimate club challenge event was the Inter-County Cross Country in Dundalk IT last weekend. It produced a big move in the women's challenge. Niamh Hennelly has leap-frogged to the top of the leaderboard and it will take some fancy footwork and equally fancy mathematics to dislodge her.

In the men's challenge things were largely unchanged at the very top but Gary Thornton, Keith Fallon, Brian O'Connor and John Cronin made great strides up the leaderboard. But have they left their dash too late?

GCH Club Challenge 2014 Results (Event 13, Round 2)

The second day of the Connacht cross country held in Westport House last Sunday. The venue was superb for a more traditional cross country course with lots of hills and muck. The heavy passing showers made underfoot conditions difficult and several GCH participants fell during the races but everybody finished.

With the results now in, there have been some small but significant changes at the top of the leaderboards in both the men's and women's events.

Jane Walsh by managing to stay upright in Westport has eked out another 3 points in her lead over Mags Sheridan. In a sport of miles these 'inches' may makes all the difference come St. Stephen's Day.
On the men's side of things Martin Kearney and Martin McEvilly put further daylight between themselves and the chasing pack and the major honours are surely between the two of them now. The elder statesmen of the club are showing the young bucks the way to do it. Vincent Jordan is still keeping his name in the mix and has moved back into third place overall due to his efforts in Mayo.
