t’s a quite time overall on the race front but those who did compete this week had some fantastic results. Carolyn Hayes was in Dublin for the National Cross Country on Sunday mixing it with Ireland’s top runners. Carolyn proved she’s amongst the best herself with a brilliant 13th position overall taking some notable scalps in the process.
Declan Guina was also in action on Sunday in the 3 Counties Road Race Series. Declan won the 4K race in 13.55. Well done to both Carolyn and Declan.
