Munster Juvenile Even Age Cross Country 2016

Another weekend of cross country competition took place in Co.Cork on Sunday, 23 October 2016. This was the first Munster competition of the season and the glorious weather conditions brought a hugh number of athletes in Juveniles and Novice/U23 categories.
St.Brendan's AC had 5 juveniles in Boys U10 category competing as individual and as a team for club and Kerry: Aaron Horgan, Zach Walshe, Eoghan O'Flaherty, Matthew O'Sullivan and Darragh O'Flaherty.

Following on from gold medal performance in Kerry U10 competition, our group of runners put in some great effort when battling with well over 150 other boys in this age category (1000m distance). 

With the huge numbers on the starting line it was a sprint from the start and trying to settle into a rhythm and not trip over. Our boys finished in positions: 31, 32, 93, 111 and 142.
Well done to all 5 boys, especially Matthew and Darragh who stepped up from U9 category to made a St.Brendan's AC team for the Munster competition, finishing in 8th place.
Aaron and Zach also placed for Kerry team in 5th place.
Thanks to all the parents who travelled and supported our athletes on the day and for commitments to help them to fulfil their full potential.
