BHAA Cross Country
Prizes Galore For the Club Members

On a beautiful morning for running the Annual BHAA Cross Country race took place.
 It was great to see such a huge crowd which is getting bigger every year and even better to see so many from the club in attendance. Our first man home was Morgan O'Regan running his first cross country race closely followed by Derek Aherne.
Our first lady home was Sally Drennan followed by Joan Hough. It was really great to see so many from the club participating and all running very well it augers well for the year ahead.

Of course we were in the prizes with Sally Drennan 1st O/50, Joan Hough 1st O/60, Kathleen O'Connell 1st O/65 and our men also took prizes with Neilus Aherne 1st O/60 and Donie O'Connell 1st O/65.
Our Midleton Town Council Teams took 2nd Grade B with Ladies Sally and Kathleen and our men's team 2nd Grade B with Derek, Neilus and Fionan doing the honours. A great mornings work all round. Well done all.

BHAA Cross Country 
This is an event well worth trying if you are interested in trying cross country in a friendly non competitive race. Not the easiest of courses but not the worst either and well within the capabilities of all members. Danny
ESB X Country Jan 6

ESB X Country Jan 6

The only cross country race on the Cork BHAA calendar, this race traditionally takes place early on in the year. The course is 5k over 3 laps around the fields near Beaumont Quarry. This is a good way to start the year and is a good introduction to cross-country running.
Registration from 9.30am and refreshments afterwards at Cork Constitution Club House.
