Two from the club, Martin Doyle and Sadanand Magee tackled the hilly Windmill 10km in Garristown on Sunday morning both securing a place in the top three.
It was showery and windy in the morning which thankfully passed to give fair conditions for the race. The course itself takes some lovely countryside roads but is not one for Pb’s with a steady uphill start and a steep uphill finish. On the last kilometre, the runners have to battle it out on the ‘bog hill challenge’ as it has been tagged.
It was a good result for Sportsworld with Sadanand winning the race and Martin coming in 3rd, only being pipped on the last steep hill. The sheer quantity of homemade sandwiches and cakes at the end made up for all the hill work. All in all a good warm-up for Dunshaughlin 10km in a couple of weeks.
