Dublin XC Championships (Even Ages) Results


Sunday was a historic day for all our athletes as they competed in the very first event ever to be held at the new National Cross Country Course in Abbottstown. It was a blustery day, although fortunately the rain held off.

First Medal of the day was won by Shauna Prior, a brilliant third in the U10 girls. We had two team wins. Firstly U14 Boys took Bronze. They were led by Josh (super run came 6th), followed by James, Lorcan, Hugh and Ben. Then the U16 girls took Silver. They were led by a very strong Lottie who took it out from the start and came 5th, followed by Anna, Lily and Kerrie.

Strong individual performances by Daphne, Oscar and Ella who didn’t have the support of a team, but didn’t let that stop them.

Great runs by Eibhlin and Mairead in the U18 girls, and Conor and Stephen in the U18 boys.

Orla Bollard ran her first senior womens race in the Autumn Open. It was  strong field led by Fionnuala McCormack. Orla came an impressive 31st with a time of 24.46

Full credit to all, with many stepping up an age to compete. As ever thanks to the parents who supported, and gave lifts.
