National Masters Indoors (8th Mar)
The trip to the AIT Arena was short but the journey to the National Indoor Masters T&F was long with many months of preparation for the Harriers who competed on Sunday 8th March.
In the Master Men Race Walk, Colm Walsh was the first Mullingar Harrier across the finish line winning his category and with that his first National victory. Showing no sign of having raced the National Senior 20k Race Walking Championships on Saturday where he finished fifth overall, Sean McMullin toed the line for the 3,000m Walk on Sunday with plenty of expectations, and duly delivered, winning his category and adding to his vast collection of National titles.
Gerard Gavin was fully focussed this time round for the 3,000m event and, keeping an eye closely on how the race unfolded, timed his finish perfectly moving in to third place with three laps to take home a National bronze medal. Pauric Brady was bolstered with confidence from his success at the Provincial championships in the 1,500m race but was unfortunate to finish outside the medals on this occasion.
