Milers Take To The Trails, Road and Classroom
The first race of the IMRA South East League took place in Castlecomer Discovery Park in Kilkenny last Sunday. The conditions under foot were very wet and mucky. Running for the club was Robert Cunningham and Pat Hartigan. Congratulations also goes to some of our youngest club members Ryan & Ruairí Cunningham who competed in the 3k junior race.
The Newcastle 5k
Willie O'Donoghue and Mary Pyke took on the Newcastle 5k on Sunday last in tough conditions. A testing course along with the wind and the rain did not faze these two. Well done to Willie who finished 4th overall and 1st in category follow shortly by Mary Pkye.
