Another step up in level for our senior athletes came about on Sunday 31st October in Two-Mile-Borris as the Munster Senior Cross-Country Championships were down for decision. The rain and wind came just before the start and this added to the soft underfoot conditions but great credit to the four ladies involved, Louise Fogarty, Sharon Cantwell, Lisa Quinlan, and Aisling Maher as they did not let the conditions or step up in class deter them from their race plans.
With the field of athletes including national and international athletes, the pace was always going to be fast and as the race unfolded this turned out to be the way, but our club athletes showed their strength and commitment over the 6k to be right in the mix. Louise ran strongly to finish 20th, followed by Sharon in 24th, Lisa 28th and Aisling 30th to bring the club to fourth place in the Inter-Club championship. What a return from the ladies who have been very consistent in the running thus far this season. Well done all.
