GCH Club Challenge 2014 Results (Event 11)

Jane, Martin, Mags
The latest Club Challenge after the Grey Lakes 10km and the Galway County Cross Country, both held in Loughrea in the last couple of weeks. The Cross Country was very well attended with 24 Harriers competing in the adult races.

In the women's challenge it looks like it's becoming another head to head between Jane and Mags. However Grainne and Niamh could challenge if they feature strongly in at least 2 of the remaining 4 events.

In the men's challenge Martin McEvilly is rolling back the years by topping the table going into the tailend of the season. Vincent Jordan lies second currently, but Martin Kearney is in a solid third with a race in hand so is well placed for a jump into the lead after one more race.

Upcoming races include the National Marathon in Dublin and the Connacht Cross Country on 2nd & 9th November.

As well as being a stunningly beautiful route, the coastal run is flat and ideal for PBs. The race, organised by the Conamara club, TríSpórt, will be chip-timed and refreshments will be provided afterwards in Carna Bay Hotel.
