In years to come it may be known as the Thunder ‘n’ Lightening Leinsters!
The Leinster Uneven Ages and Senior Cross Country Championships took place in Adamstown on Sun, Nov 11. The advice beforehand was to “bring wellies”. And the rest! What started as a mild and warm afternoon very quickly turned into something quite different. First the clouds turned ominously black; then, with a flash of lightening and a crash of thunder they burst open. Oh Lord, such rain! Then the hailstones came down, just as the U15 Girls were starting. And, of course, you know exactly what the old-timers were saying? Nothing like real cross country! Full results.
The Mr Oil Wexford Juvenile Even Ages and Novice Cross Country Championships took place in Davidstown on 7th Oct. Read the race report and results. The Juvenile Uneven Ages and Senior Cross Country Championships t00k place on a spectacular course at JFK Park & Arboretum on 14th Oct. Race report and results.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
We take the development and promotion of athletics very seriously in these parts. That’s why we have one of the most dynamic athletics communities in the country.
We also pay attention to the big health and social benefits which athletics brings. “Mens sana in corpore sano” as the Romans say! And the good news is that you are never to old, or too young, to start. If you are new to athletics you will find details of the club nearest to you under ‘Clubs’.
Running really is good for you! We spotted an article entitled 10 Mental Health Benefits of Running on Competitor Running (online).
“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” Dean Karnazes
