The county senior outdoors track and field championship sees leg 5 of the club challenge.  The events that make up this leg are as follows: 

  • 7:45pm - 3000m Women
  • 8:15pm - 5000m Men

There will be no GCH track training this Tuesday evening to facilitate the county championships so why not use the 3000m/5000m as your track session and gain some valuable points in the club challenge at the same time.

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.
