Brilliant running at County Mayo Cross Country Championships

Shining bright at Belleek: Martina, Angela, Paula,  Noreen, Jimmy, Monica, Colette, Edel

The County Mayo Cross Country Championships took place at Belleek on Sunday. Once again it was hosted and well organised by local club Moy Valley AC in conjunction with the County Board

Juvenile races started at 11.00am and were followed in the afternoon by women’s and men’s senior/masters.

Despite recent rain and the preceding juvenile events the course was in good condition and as usual there were testing challenges in some sections as befits cross country.

Well done to our eight members who represented the club at this annual County  championships and ran brilliantly.

Angela O’Connor, Monica Joyce, Colette Tuohy, Noreen McManamon –  Paula Donnellan, Edel Reilly, Martina O’Connor were in a combined field including some underage runners and Jimmy Feeney M65+, all set off to run four laps – approx 4k.

Getting going on first lap

Edel Reilly ran strongly to finish second overall with Martina O’Connor third, with Colette Tuohy, Paula Donnellan and Angela O’Connor well up at the funnel finish. Good to meet up with former members Caroline and Catherine Conway – both of them ran today, and TJ McHugh who ran the Galway Bay Half yesterday in 85 mins.

Official results will be provided by the Co Board and we’ll publish the relevant ones here when received. And some more photos.
