Good weekend for NUIG in the intervarsity All Irelands in April, some promising results within the sprint group.
Cormac Lynch made a welcome return to competitive athletics running 11.11. Cormac will be training with our group next year.
Owen Scully made a sensational return to outdoor competition running 11.35, not bad for a 400m runner!
Cormac & Owen both done the double and ran 22.82 and 23.65 respectively.
400m (Crazy hard wind for heats so times prob a lot better)
The Galway 5km Series sponsored by Bradley Renault is nearly upon us and with many GCH members signed up to particiapate it should make for a great start to the running summer.
Like all good things the series doesn't just happen and there are a few things we'd like some help with before the series kicks off.
The AAI National 10k is on Sunday 10th April in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. GCH athletes performed extremely well last year (report here), with three teams winning silver medals and several gold medal winners. We hope repeat and improved performances for this year.
Please email Mags Sheridan, club secretary, before Thursday 31st March if you intend to compete this year: email@example.com
A massive congrats to all who took part in the Kinvarra Rock and Road Half Marathon and 10k Races earlier this month.
GCH were dominant in the field and even more dominant on the podium despite windy conditions on the undulating course.
Must be all that winter training paying off!!!
In the Men’s 10k Race, the 2016 is looking good already for Owen Byrne who came 2nd in 35.05.
In the Women’s 10k Race Siobhan Egan is looking fresh after her Cross Country team win taking 2nd place also in 39.38.
It was a great weekend for Galway, with the Inter County Cross Country Gold Cups coming back to Galway for the first time in 30 years!!! For the first time in 42 years the XC Champs were held in Galway so what better place to collect a win than on home turf!!
GCh were proud to be represented in the Captain Seat for both the Men’s and Women’s Teams, with Gerry Carty heading up the Men’s side and Siobhan Egan heading up the Ladies team.
Tuam and County Galway are all set to host the All Ireland Cross Country Inter-County Championships for the firsts time in 42 years this Sunday February 14th. With a home advantage the Galway Team Manager Ian Egan is hoping the Tribes can claim it's first medal in 30 years at the event.
