This Sunday the cross country season kicks off with Day 1 of the East Cork cross country. It takes place in Conna -P51 P903.

Entries are to be in by Friday. Please let Sally know by 8.00 pm on Friday if you intend to run, 0872265857.
The categories are: Junior, Senior and Masters o/35/0/45 ladies and men
You can run both Senior and Master once you let the organisers know.
Ladies Junior 3000m,  Senior and Masters 4000m
Mens Junior 4500, Senior and Masters 6000m.

It starts with the juvenile races at 11.30, but they go fairly quickly so allow plenty of time to get warmed up.

Thanks!  Sally

Lads and Ladies this is an ideal opportunity to try Cross Country in a nice friendly atmosphere Ideal for the first timer so why not give it a go. Anyone who can run around the field at training on a Monday can do this and maybe you will discover a hidden talent. It is a team sport and every runner counts. 

We need a few O/35 ladies especially for a team so come on, be brave and help your club mates bring hope the medals.

Its only out the road and you will be home again in no time  Danny

 MRRA report and photos Andre Brodkorb

We had three entries from Midleton AC at today’s Munster Mountain Running Association race in our own Curragh woods in Midleton. It is a hard and difficult race, but Henry Millard, Barry Williams and Siobhan Barry managed the steep slopes, which were transformed overnight from lovely summer trails to muddy and treacherous mountain trails. Well done everyone!

Another great night in Cloyne and superbly organised, It was wonderful to meet so many old friends and to see so many out running. 

We had a great crew out and all ran well. The Flying Spiteri Duo both had great runs whilst Ger O'Regan narrowly missed out on a PB .Loveness Hegarty showed her class and had a cracking run and earned herself a PB. 

A great evening was had by all and a big thanks to all our members who came out to support including young Tom McCarthy who was there to cheer on his Dad Eugene. Thank you Cloyne Community for making it all happen.
