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

  • Posted on: 25 November 2014
  • By: GCH Web

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?

The Conamara 10k promises to be one of the most scenic road races in Ireland, starting in Carna village, crossing the islands of Roisín an Chaladh and Muighnis, before reaching the turnaround point at Muighnis graveyard and heading back to Carna.

As well as being a stunningly beautiful route, the coastal run is flat and ideal for PBs. The race, organised by the Conamara club, TríSpórt, will be chip-timed and refreshments will be provided afterwards in Carna Bay Hotel.

The Conamara 10k will be open to runners, joggers and walkers. There will also be a number of fun runs for children.
