Galway City Harriers Represented at the

Athletics Kenya Cross Country in Iten

Saturday 09th December

In Kenya, cross country in a big deal! Cross country is where you go if you want to get noticed by an agent/coach/sponsor. Unfortunately, you also need to be crazy fast to get noticed by anyone around here, and so when the dust had settled, literally, I had not earned a contract or a shoe deal!
