All roads lead to Abbotstown, Co. Dublin on Sunday next when the National Even Age Juvenile Cross Country Championships take place. Our Boys U/12 team have qualified for this event by virtue of their third place in Munster and Aaron McLoughlin, Jake Bowe, David Doyle and Cormac Burke will be hoping to mix it up with the best athletes from the rest of the country. The standard will be extremely high but no doubt the boys will be up for the challenge. Aaron and Jake are also part of the Tipperary U/12 team on the day.
In addition to the above the club have the following athletes competing on Sunday and representing Tipperary in the process – Helen Cleere, Amy Reddan, Louise Hickey, Tara Gleeson, Emma Gleeson, Emma Leahy and Aine Duggan – at U/12 and U/14 level and all are wished the very best of luck.
The first race gets underway at 11.30am and all athletes should be at the venue in plenty of time to walk the course, collect their Tipperary jerseys and numbers and be checked in for their races. The jerseys and numbers must be collected by 10.15am at the latest and will be available from Nikki Hennessy and Mary Doyle.
