Here's the updated Club Challenge Tables after the National Inter-Counties XC.

Highlights of the movers and shakers after the latest round………..

Jane Walsh has pushed to the top of the women's challenge thanks to her exploits in tracking down Fionnuala Britton in the National Inter-counties and by doing so it looks like it a two horse race between herself and Mags Sheridan.

A new entrant to the table is Nicola Duncan after an incredible run to 13th in the national Inter-Counties with the elite of Irish running.
