Castlegar Open Cross Country
Sinead Tynan and Aisling Maher made the trip to Galway Racecourse on Saturday last for an open cross-country event run by Castlegar AC. Sinead finished 23rd and second in her category in a time of 18.11 with Aisling just places five places behind in 18.40. Well, done girls and what a great way to commence your cross-country season.
All athletes should now be actively engaged in training in anticipation of the first cross country race of the season in Newport on Sunday 3rd October. On that day the County Even Age Juvenile and Novice Championships take place, and it is hoped to have a good representative of club athletes in all events. All athletes should ensure that they have been registered with AAI prior to competition. If in doubt, please contact Michelle Percy.
The club are appealing for anyone with a Moyne AC singlet in their home to please return it to the club. With the imminent start of the cross-country season the club will need all singlets for our athletes. If you have competed with the club in the past and would like to contribute your singlet back to the club, we would be very appreciative. If any athlete is interested in buying their own singlet, they can be got on the club shop on the O’Neill’s website, and this is something the club would also recommend particularly considering the Covid-19 pandemic.
