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.

Dublin Juvenile Track & Field League 1

Saturday saw the start of the Dublin Athletic Board Juvenile Leagues in Santry Stadium. We had 27 athletes competing across various track and field events. The sprint races were decided by heats, semi finals and finals and the middle distance races were decided on times. We had semi-finalists and finalists across all the age groups for the sprints and await official results regarding the middle distance races and field events.

Each and every athlete performed to the best of their abilities. From the photos it is obvious they all enjoyed the day and were there for each other. Kate, Laura, Rachel Grace and Caoimhe were competing for the Club for the first time and they didn’t let their nerves get the better of them. Congratulations to all our athletes on their great performances, they did themselves, their parents, their coaches and Skerries AC proud.

Thanks to Brenda and Michael for officiating on the day, Thanks also to John, Maeve, Seamus, Carole, Deirdre, Paul, Gareth and Diane for looking after our athletes and to all our coaches for their time each week coaching our athletes. Last but not least the parents whose support and encouragement from the stands means a whole lot to our budding athletes. Unfortunately poor Aoibheann couldn’t compete today as she was ill this morning. Get well soon.

Well done everyone, looking forward to seeing you all again on 27th at League 2.
