The Dublin Intermediate Cross-Country Championships took place last Sunday the 14th Oct in Tymon park. The weather was unseasonably good, which meant the course was in much better condition than you’d normally expect at this time of year. Although Tymon park is mainly flat, there was a hill on each lap of the course to challenge the legs and lungs of the participants.
Sean Wall won the under 17 race comfortably – he led from the start and sauntered home with a huge lead on the rest of the pack.
The Women’s race was 2 laps, or 4K, and Stephanie Bergin led the team home to a 3rd place finish, while also winning an individual bronze herself. Jackie O Hagan was our 2nd runner home followed by Louise Nolan / Helen Dixon / Kim Masuda / Jenny Maher.
Team Places > Stephanie Bergin 3rd / Jackie O Hagan 18th / Louise Nolan 19th / Helen Dixon 24th / Kim Masuda 30th / Jenny maher 39th.
The men’s race was 5 laps, or 10K, and the SportsWorld guys narrowly missed out on 3rd place in the team event. Eanna Cunanne picked up an individual silver, while Ed McEntee and Ronan Merrick took 11th and 12th, with Jakub Splawski and Will Greensmyth also running.
