There were fine performances all round from GCH athletes on Sunday last at the AAI Open Cross Country Races and Masters Trials , held at the National Sports Campus, Abbottstown in Dublin. On an honest course, underfoot conditions were quite good despite the weather in the days beforehand, making it conducive to good cross country running. Eleven athletes represented the club in the various races.
The Connaught Senior League Cross Country and Connaught Primary Schools Cross Country competitions, scheduled for tomorrw - Saturday 21st October in Roscommon - are now cancelled due to the imminent storm.
This event will be rescheduled.

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.
