Two PBs For Daniel

Daniel Colbert again excelled today at the Woodies DIY Athletic Ireland Indoor Open Games where whilst working on building up his speed he achieved two new PBs  in 60 mtrs (7.27) and 200 mtrs (22.81) he also took 2nd place in both races. These events were again streamed live from the AAI website and were well worth watching. Well done as always Daniel.

MMRA Race in Curragh Wood

The Munster Mountain Running Association held the second race in the current series in Cunnagh Wood Sunday morning. Over eighty runners took part in this event which is growing in popularity by the week.
We had three members taking part and all performed very well. With Andre Brodkorb having a superb run and showing what skill he has as a downhill runner whilst he was closely follow by a flying Matt Chojan who also came thundering downhill with both finishing around the top ten places.
Our only lady taking part was Maggie Chojan who had a great run also and finished 2nd Lady.
It was a grand morning for the race which took place in very different conditions from the first event held there last Summer. More info and details of future races can be found on the MMRA website.
