Adamstown, Co Wexford was the venue on Sunday last for the Uneven National Cross Country Championships where we had 6 athletes competing. With good underfoot and dry weather conditions all our athletes competed very well on the day amidst very stiff competition. The day commenced with the girls U11 1500m where Rachel Butler once again proved she can compete with the best in Ireland when she finished 7th overall claiming her second National Individual medal this season. Rachel made her presence felt from the start and covered the 1500m distance in great style leading the race at times, she remained with the leading group right throughout finishing a fantastic 7th and also winning herself a Gold Munster Provincial team medal by finishing 3rd on the Munster Team – well done Rachel on a fantastic Cross Country Season. We had 4 athletes representing Tipperary in the Girls U13 2500m which was a great achievement for the Club, first home was Erica Carroll followed by Roisin Daly, Niamh Ryan and Orlaith Maher, these girls all put in fantastic performances but their finishing places are not available at time of going to press and will be published later. Orla Healy was our final competitor of the day when she took to the line representing Tipperary in the Girls U17 4000m – Orla had a superb race but again her finishing position is not available at this time. We congratulate all 6 athletes on reaching the National Finals and competing so admirably on the day – well done to you all and to all our athletes who performed superbly throughout the Cross Country Season.
