Irish Life Health National Juvenile Indoor Championships

Day 2 of these championships took place in Athlone on Sunday, and it was great to see the club had athletes competing in this top tier of championship racing.

Alana Spillane competing in her first ever national indoor final ran in the Girls U/15 800mts and was undaunted by the opposition posting a time of 2.33.21 to finish 7th in her heat. Leona Maher is no stranger to competing at top level and this weekend was in action in her age group championship U/19 ladies in the 200mts coming through for 8th in her heat in 28.41. Well done to both athletes on their performances and no doubt will see a lot from them in the outdoor championships.

County Road Relay Championships
The club hosted the County Road Relay Championships on Sunday and provided three teams to the competition with all featuring in the medals. The format for the day was 3,000 x 800 x 1,500 x 800 providing great excitement for the spectators.

The team of Sharon Cantwell, Edel Delaney, Orla Healy and the final leg again run by Sharon came through for third place while the team of Lisa Quinlan, Brigid Gleeson, Aisling Maher and Ber Spillane finished fourth and won the “B” section. The men’s team of Brian Carroll, Jake Bowe, Michéal O’Mahony and Pakie Bowe finished 3rd and winning the bronze medals. Well done to all three teams. Thanks to everyone who helped beforehand in organising the event and those who stewarded on the day. Help at all our hosted events is most welcome.
