The Summer Meet and Train league kicked off on Sunday 17th of April with a 2 mile race in Irishtown hosted by Crusaders.
On a sunny morning five Sportsworld teams came along to give the best ever performance of our club in M&T league. We had eight Sportsworld athletes in the top ten. Also all top five ladies wore the familiar red and white singlets. Ruth Kelly was 1st, Ciara Forster 2nd, Rachel Mannion 3rd, Catriona Higgins 4th and Natalia Sokolowska 5th.Orla Jordan (8th), Ann Higgins (9th) and Katherine Reynolds (10th) were also in top ten. We are still awaiting full results.
The course which lead along the seaside was truly scenic but the middle mile was quite muddy and surprisingly hilly for the road race. But beautiful weather definitely made up for inconveniences.
After the race we also received prizes for winter races when Sportsworld’s A Team was first and B Team was second in gold division. We were also second in bronze. Mairead O’Callaghan was the overall individual winner of the winter series. Well done!
Next two races are pencilled for 8th and 11th of May. Updates and pictures as usual are available on www.womensmeetandtrain.blogspot.com. Keep an eye on this website for race venue and date confirmations.
