Cross Country BHAA

A total of one hundred and eighty five runner took part in this race. It is the only cross country race on the BHAA calendar and was in danger of being dropped but with the huge crowd there today its future is secure. We had a fine crew out and all of them did very well. It is a very tough three loop course with a steep downhill over very rough surface and an even tougher uphill as can be seen from the photos.
Our first man home was Brian Harty who had a superb run and finished 12th overall. Our first lady was Marie Gillman who was 6th lady overall and took 2nd O/50 prize. Our other prize winners were John Cashman 3rd O/50 and Donie O'Connell 2nd O/60. It was also great to see John Dunphy back in action and running well whilst Michael McNamara and Paul Kearns again showed how well the have taken to cross country.
