The National Masters and Intermediate Cross Country Championships, along with Juvenile B/Relays takes place in in Kilcornan Estate, Clarinbridge on Sunday, 11th February. The Galway County Athletics Board has worked hard to secure the event/venue for the West. At the end of 2017, our Club was the biggest Athletics Club in Ireland, and it would be great to reflect this by fielding teams in the Masters and Intermediate races.
