Inter-Varsity Cross Country (7th Mar)
The IUAA Inter-Varsity Cross Country Championships were hosted by University College Cork on Saturday 7th March and Mullingar Harriers were well represented in both races. The course was quite flat, but the windy conditions tested the resolve of the athletes.
In the girls 5,000m event, Claire Fagan ran an excellent race to finish second and lead her team Dublin City University to second place. Next club finisher was Andrea Brady in the colours of AIT closely followed by Aoife Darby for DCU. On the men’s side, Cormac Dalton ran a very strong and controlled race to finish sixth for DCU. His teammate, Euan Lagan also had his strongest cross country race to date and both can take great satisfaction in being part of the winning team.
This is the final cross country race of the season so all will now focus on the upcoming track season and some road races.
