Master Goats strike Gold and Silver at National 5k Road Championships

Our Coaches Keith, David and John represented Skerries AC today at the National 5k Road Championships in the Phoenix Park. The stage was set for a great race on a beautiful sunny but crisp morning.

David was first home for the club in a time of 17:03 and 4th in his age category. Keith was close behind with a time of 17:07 winning Gold in his age category and taking the National title. John brought the team home with a time of 18:47, 4th in his age category.

All three were competing in the over 35 team category. They took Silver closely behind Rathfarnham and ahead of many of the big clubs in Ireland.

Phenomenal achievement, well done to all.
