Silent night and days! Weekend round up

It”s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, with only days to go it’s a quiet weekend on the racing front.

The only race we are aware of with Clonliffe interest was yesterday’s 35th running of the O’Rourke Shield in Malahide Castle grounds won by Murray Ahern, 2nd was Noel Daly, 3rd Tom Cassidy. Fastest time was Murray Ahern 18.15 for the 5k xc run.

Today in the final training session before Christmas day the girls cross country group welcomed back Jenna Cida who was here from her home in Barcelona for a couple of days. A nice 50 minute run in the rain in Santry Demesne was the fare on offer. Needless to say despite not having run for a few months the Judo champion was still fit enough to comfortably complete the Sunday long run.

A reminder: don’t let your Christmas racing schedule¬† miss out on the ERP Xmas Cracker 5k in December 30th. Enter on line today!
