The first track race of the year took place this past Saturday in Santry stadium. The club had 6 runners taking part. First up was Anna Delaney who made her track race debut in the 800M. Anna ran well to finish strongly. Next up was Ciara Foster who ran in the 2nd heat of the 800M, also for the first time. Ciara ran a strong race and managed to look very strong on the home straight.
Denis McCaul was the first of the men running in the 800M. Dennis put himself in the deep end, running 67 for his opening lap. Despite a gallant effort he lost some places on the second lap but finished strongly with a smile at the end. A job well done by all in the 800M.
The last event of the night was the 3K. The final event of the night was the men’s 3000 meters first up was Paul Duffy who ran a very good season opener to finish second. In the next race Gavin Finaly and Gareth Murran ran finishing 4th and 8th.
Well done all athletes who competed in the first graded meeting on 30th April. It’s early days in the track season with plenty more chances to race.
We had a record number of competitors. The full results will be displayed here shortly. The next meeting is on May 14th in Tallaght Athletic Stadium. Events include the Dublin athletic board 10K track championship also 200m, 1500m. I’d encourage many more club members to give it a go.
