Brave running at IUAA XC 2024

Brave running at IUAA XC 2024

The University Students were on form in varsity xc! Some fantastic running in the varsity xc at Queen’s University, Belfast on Saturday. Conditions were cold and windy, and the course was a technically challenging one, full of twists and turns with fast flat expanses broken up by regular steep mucky level-changes.

Oisín Davis had shown good form in training recently and had a storming run for the UoG team, finishing as their 3rd scorer and 13th overall with the exact same time as his housemate Aaron Brennan (but a step behind so bragging rights stay with Aaron!). Oisin and Aaron worked really well together pulling each other up through the field in a perfect display of Cross Country teamwork.

Patrick Noonan was close behind in 7th NUIG man. Patrick never quite felt comfortable and it was one of those days where he had to tough it out – he did so admirably, running strongly all the way to finish 30th. Anthony Boyle went out too hard and felt very comfortable until he didn’t – 8km is a long way!. He held on well and finished well up the field ahead of some class athletes and can be very proud of his first varsity xc outing. The lads won Bronze, just ahead of a strong Cork outfit. It was also great to see Luke Evans back on track running for Trinity in his OYD. Luke’s Dad Dave is well known for his work with the Wednesday evening senior interval session group.

In the women’s race, Helena O’Keeffe was the only Craughwell lady to line up (ably supported by travelling teammate Emily Miskella who was sick) and she ran brilliantly. Helena faced the adversity of losing BOTH spikes on the first one mile lap. Helena rallied bravely to finish as 4th UL scorer, well up the field.
