Ulrik Nyberg reports from Somewhere in Ireland: Very excited about what the destination of the Magical Mystery Tour might be, about 40 young Clonliffe athletes entered the team bus early yesterday, Sunday, morning together with their coaches. After a long and adventurous journey through the beautiful countryside around Naul, which included race bicycle counting, singing and many “are we there yet?”-questions, we reached our destination Stamullen, Co. Meath where Star Of The Sea AC held their 30th annual cross-country meeting.
We had runners in all the youngest age groups from U/9s and upwards. Some of our athletes ran their first cross country race ever and everybody really put in great efforts. Before getting back on the bus for some more singing and a “treat stop”, we enjoyed a picnic lunch together in the autumn sunshine.
All together it was a great day out with lots of fun and bonding between athletes and coaches. Gladys is planning more Magical Mystery Tours so: Roll up! Roll up!
