Thanks to Marion Mattimoe Mayo Athletics County Board, for the following report and results of Sunday’s Mayo Cross-Country league races at Swinford:
The B & J Chambers Mayo Even Ages Cross Country Championships and League Leg 3 was hosted by Swinford Athletic Club in Mellett’s Hill at the weekend.
The course was very challenging with lots of twist and turns to make the competition more interesting.
Heavy winds and rain made for tough conditions but all the athletes took it in their stride and gave it their all for club and family.
A large crowd of athletes from all over the county participated.
Thanks to Swinford Athletic Club who had the course set up for the competitions and who provided refreshments for all on the day.
Thanks to the Mayo Athletic Co Board for organising the event.
Also thanks to Mayo Civil Defence who officiated on the day.
For Mayo AC Pauline Moran and Mags Glavey kept up their fitness levels up in the women’s race ahead of the British and Irish Masters International Cross Country at Santry on November 12.
Mike Griffin led home in the men’s race.
Both fields were small probably due to another event on the day!
