Cross Country East Cork Championships
Sinead O'Driscoll 2nd overall and 1st O/35
What we lacked in numbers we made up for in quality with some very fine running from all our runners. Sinead O'Driscoll running her first race in months and coming back after injury had a great run coming 2nd overall and 1st O/35. Eileen Leahy solid as always had a very fine run despite having to discard her spikes half way around. Edmond O'Sullivan also just back from injury and not having run in a few weeks ran very well and may be in the medals.
It was a wonderfully organised event by St Nicholas AC and the conditions were ideal. A big thank you also to all our supporters who turned out as well.
We had a fine crowd at training on Wednesday evening in the Community Centre where Declan Dorgan put us through our paces. We had four different nationalities taking part and new membership is continuing to increase at a pace with lots availing of our Special Offer of Membership for 25e for four months whilst other organisations are charging 100e for a nine week c2 5k.
Monday we have one Monday @6pm left in Market Green then we move to the All Weather Hockey Pitch in Midleton College.
Thursday Thursday's @ 9pm @ Co Op Stores is once again proving a great success.
