GloHealth Combined Events Championships
Here are the standings after the National Novices cross country where our ladies team did the club proud bringing home a national bronze team medal. Not a lot changed at the top of the standings but Alvy Carragher, Barbara Dunne and Helen Corbett showed they would be serious contenders for the Club Challenge title if they put their mind to it. Niamh Hennelly had another great run on the country and looks like she can't be stopped now. Still plenty up for grabs though with the other placings and the age category awards.
On the men's side Martin Kearney, recent recruit to the M60 category, can technically still be denied the the overall award but it will take a perfect storm of results for this to happen. St. Stephen's Day in Athenry will decide all.
Next start date for Beginners to Fit4Life is Monday 12th January 2015.
Meet at 7pm outside Westside Library.

For anyone that has missed training over the last few months now would be a good time to get right back and get fit for summer.
