The National Cross Country Championships for uneven ages took place in Cow Park, Dunboyne on Sunday last on a cool but beautiful winter’s day. The course was quite challenging with lots of twists and turns on route and the terrain was muddy which make it difficult to navigate at times for the athletes. However it was a hugely enjoyable day and well done to all our athletes who put in a brave effort throughout their race.
The National Cross Country Championships for Even Ages took place in Abbotstown in the National Sports Campus earlier today. Although the weather was dry for the event, rainfall earlier in the week left the course in muddy condition which made it difficult for the athletes to negotiate in places.
