Weekly News Roundup - Week 3/2018


Leinster Cross Country Success 14.01.2018

Tom Lupton was the man of the moment in Dunboyne in the Leinster Intermediate and Masters cross country, where he captured the Leinster Intermediate title to add to his 3rd place in the Leinster Novice last October.

Tom ran a great race and pulled away near the end to record a 5 second win over Mark Molloy from Dublin. Great reward for Tom for all the hard work he puts into his training.

Tom is also down running with the Couch to 5K group on a Wednesday night and hopefully he is passing on his winning tips to his group.

We only had two ladies running in the master ladies event, Anna Duggan and Maria Cuddy both ran strongly in a very competitive race and finished close to each other.

Anna was on the Laois team that finished in 8th place.

In the masters men's race we had five athletes running, Colm Fitzgerald, Cyril Cuddy, James Hamm, Paul Cuddy and Richie Reid. Our masters team finished in 5th place overall and Colm scored on the Laois team that got Bronze medals.

Great running by all who made the trip to Meath.
