National Evenage Championships

Posted on Nov 27, 2017 in Junior Events Blog, Latest News

The National Even Age Cross Country Championships took place in Abbotstown last Sunday. This is a purpose built cross country course in the National Sports Campus.

Alan McCutcheon (U12), Sarah Hosey (U14) and Kevin O’Grady (U18) of Dooneen AC represented their province after qualifying from the Munster finals in Clarecastle a few weeks earlier. A mention as well to Sarah’s sister Ellen who competed for Emerald AC.  Sarah and Alan ran well but were not in the medals on this occasion. Alan took a fall at the start of the race but got himself up and completed the course.  Kevin O’Grady was running ‘out of age’ and sensibly pulled up midway through the race after experiencing a cramp.. They are all looking forward to running with their Dooneen friends in the County finals at the weekend.
