All Ireland Even Age Group Cross Country Finals

If Carlsberg did race conditions, they would be hard pushed to better the going in Santry today. The sun shone as the qualifiers from the provincial cross country championships converged on the outskirts of North Dublin for the prestigious, All Ireland, even age group finals. These hugely competitive races always attract large entries and this year was no exception.  North Belfast Harriers were represented by 17 runners across age groups from U12 to U18&Junior. Our athletes gave it their all, recording solid performances all round, gaining massive experience and making great memories in the process. With continued application they will undoubtedly be back to compete at this level again next year.

Special congratulations to Roise Roberts for another outstanding race, taking to the podium with 3rd in the F U18 event.

Congratulations to all involved in making it through to the big day with particular thanks to the parents and supporters for the early morning start and round-trip to the venue.
