This weekend saw John and Lottie compete on Saturday in the National Schools XC Championships in Waterford (a phenomenal result to qualify). John came 6th in the Boys Intermediate 5,000m. He lead the Belvedere College Team to take the National Schools Title for the first time in what was a close run team race with St. Malachys College. Lottie came 30th in the Girls Intermediate 3,500m.
It’s not just our Juvenile athletes who were competing. Our coaches David and Kevin competed in the National Masters Indoor Championships in Athlone on Saturday. Kevin was first up in the M45 3000m. He came 7th with a time of 10.06. David followed in the M35 1500m. It was David’s first appearance at National Indoor level, with him running a brilliant race finishing in a time of 4.34, and securing 3rd place. A Bronze National Medal is an incredible result for someone relatively new to Athletics.
Finally Keith competed in Bothermeen half marathon on Sunday . He finished in a time of 1h:17.min:55sec to secure 1st place in the M50 category against stiff competition. A great result and great preparation for his marathon in April.
Well done to all.
