On Tuesday 13th Dec an open invitation 3km run was hosted by the athletics club at Conna pitch. Despite the cold and dark conditions an encouraging crowd gathered, contibuted euros 5 each and then covered 7 laps of the field. Combined with the money raised from the Monday Mile held throughout the year, the club was able to present Sheila Lane of St. Vincent de Paul with over euros 500. Thank you to everyone who took part and those who arrived to add their support and encouragement.
In the same weekend as Laura won her medal, her father Frank, our coach and chairman, represented Ireland in the British and Irish Masters Cross Country championships in Scotland. Frank’s tremendous form in recent races continued at this event where his position contributed to the Irish Men’s Over 40s team winning bronze medal. The Hayes family “broke” all kinds of records that weekend.
