GCH Club Challenge - After Event 3

The National 10k in the Phoenix Park on April 11th was the 3rd event in the GCH Club Challenge 2015. It proved to be a high scoring day in the challenge with 9 participants collecting the 30point medal bonus and two collecting the 10k PB bonus.

In both the mens and women's tables three of the top four slots are taken by our masters runners reflecting very strong national performances by this element of our club.

Weekend Round Up, National Half and Connemarathon 2015

Another great weekend of racing with the National 10k taking place at the Phoenix Park on Saturday 11th April and the renowned Connemarathon Ultra, Marathon and Half taking place on Sunday 12th April.

On Saturday in Dublin on what is a notoriously hard course especially in the last 5k of the race. This did not deter our GCH athletes who determinedly took to the course to mark their place in this National event!!

Easter Weekend Round up 2015

Easter weekend brought the sunshine to the West and it was time to put the hard slog of battling wind and rain which was plentiful over the winter season to the test. It was also time to see if our Lenten season sacrifices had paid off!!!
