IAAF NI Cross Country on Saturday

Clonliffe Harriers will make the annual trip up North on Saturday for the IAAF Northern Ireland international cross-country. The bus will leave Morton Stadium at 9 a.m. sharp returning on Saturday evening at approximately 7 or 8 p.m.

As has been the norm in recent years strong underage and Junior teams will run in the Clonliffe colours. The Clonliffe National junior team champions will feature strongly in the team competition. The club captain is specifically using Saturday’s race as part of the teams preparations for next month’s European junior clubs cross country championships in Portugal.

That combined u 17 and 18 teams, both boys and girls, will give a good account of themselves and will challenge strongly in the club event. Also competing will be a full junior women’s team.

Sean O’Leary will be running in the Irish colours making his u23 debut in the senior race.

The very best of luck to all our athletes and teams on Saturday.
