Easter weekend brought the sunshine to the West and it was time to put the hard slog of battling wind and rain which was plentiful over the winter season to the test. It was also time to see if our Lenten season sacrifices had paid off!!!

Congratulations to all our GCH athletes who took part in this year’s Craughwell 10. The sunshine brought over 33 GCHers to the race and not only did we see many podium finishes but lots of PB’s this year too.

Matt Bidwell had a fantastic finish, not only with second place but with a new PB of 52.41. He was well clear of his 54.02 finish last year and all his training is paying off pushing him form 3rd last year. Martin Kearney had a great race also and took 1st place in the M060 in 1.03.47.

And we're off...

And they're off and running (well, jogging anyway) in the 2015 GCH club challenge.  After one of the most successful GCH cross country seasons in years XC fatigue set in and the opening event of the Club challenge (Inter-club XC) had no GCH competitors.  However, the first bonus event of the challenge did see 2 GCHers travel south for one of the stars in the Irish road racing calendar, Ballycotton 10.

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?

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.

GCH Club Challenge 2014 Results (Event 11)

Jane, Martin, Mags
The latest Club Challenge after the Grey Lakes 10km and the Galway County Cross Country, both held in Loughrea in the last couple of weeks. The Cross Country was very well attended with 24 Harriers competing in the adult races.

In the women's challenge it looks like it's becoming another head to head between Jane and Mags. However Grainne and Niamh could challenge if they feature strongly in at least 2 of the remaining 4 events.

In the men's challenge Martin McEvilly is rolling back the years by topping the table going into the tailend of the season. Vincent Jordan lies second currently, but Martin Kearney is in a solid third with a race in hand so is well placed for a jump into the lead after one more race.

Upcoming races include the National Marathon in Dublin and the Connacht Cross Country on 2nd & 9th November.
