The National Novice & Juvenile Uneven Age Cross Country championships took place today at Navan racecourse. It was the final championship event on the 2018 calendar.
Course conditions were tough on a wet day with hills and hairpin bends, though the footing was good. Three West of Ireland clubs had teams competing in the novice men’s and women’s races – GCH, Sligo and Swinford. Sligo women won an excellent team silver.
