Spring Series off to a flyer in Morton Stadium

The Juvenile Spring Series goes from strength to strength. This morning`s first round at a spring like Morton Stadium drew one of the biggest ever gatherings of young athletes in the 4 years of the series. There were huge numbers from Clonliffe, Skerries, Celtic, Lusk and Portmarnock with 300 or so competing, so much so that in most age groups it was necessary to split the fields into two races.

Spring Series Start (2)

The ethos of this series is for a fun, low key, non pressurised event, where the young athletes come to a meet, run their race, maybe win a spot prize and have a good time. It is pleasing to report that that`s exactly how the morning turned out.
