A great run by Mitchel Byrne saw him winning the silver medal in the Leinster Novice Cross Country Championships in Navan on Saturday 27th October. Lee Byrne finished in 31st.

The women had a good squad out but unfortunately missed out on a team bronze by only a single point to Crusaders. Dive for the line next time guys!

Individually Carla Sweeney was 6th, Laura Ryan 30th, Ber Crowley 32nd, Aisling O’Connor 36th, Beth Neal 46th. Well done to everybody.

Big Congratulation to Rathfarnham WSAF AC’s  Paul Moran who won the silver medal at the World Masters Marathon Championships in Toronto M55 on Sunday 21st October. He ran 2:44:15 in baltic weather conditions in what was a fiercely fought race for silver between Paul and Alan Evans of USA.  Strong man Paul held off the American and claimed his silver medal.




We had just one athlete in this year's Amsterdam marathon on Sunday 21st October. Sinead Murray knocked a full 20mins off her PB to run a fantastic 3:21. Well done Sinead and we suspect there is a lot more to come!
