David Brown Mayo AC took the baton from Declan Owens on the final leg of 4x100m relay
The second day of competition in the 2023 County Mayo Outdoor Track and Field Championships took place on Sunday (May 21) at Claremorris.
Well done to Mayo Athletics Co Board who organised another full programme of competition, with good support from officials. The day included competition in underage 12-19, and Senior/Masters and ran smoothly from 10am to 4pm.
Some of the upper age groups and senior/masters track events had few entrants and they were combined into a single startlist. All the usual sprints/relays and middle distance and field events were on the programme though very few senior or masters athletes took part – there are currently close to 700 registered athletes in these categories in the county.
Mayo AC had six competitors in track races/ relays and two in field events – all men.
It was good to see new member Christian MacRae M60 making his Mayo AC debut.
Congratulations to our medal winners and well done to all of our competitors.
