Craughwell AC has been selected by the Galway County Board to host day 2 of the Galway County Cross-country Championships on Sunday October 11th commencing at 1pm. This is very exciting for the club and while we have hosted the championships twice before in this very field, this is the first time that the club will have ever hosted an event on property that it owns!

With this in mind, it will be an historic occasion and we would love our juveniles to share in the history of the occasion by taking part. You don’t have to be a distance runner to jog around for 10 or 20 minutes to complete the course and be part of history. So even if you are not into cross-country, have a think about participating and being part of a great occasion and just jog around for the taking part.

The event will kick off at 1pm with races in the following order over the distances indicated below:-

U9 Girls 800m

  U9 Boys 800m
U11 Girls 1500m  U11 Boys 1500m
U13 Girls 2500m  U13 Boys 2500m
U15 Girls 3500m  U15 Boys 3500m
U17 Girls 4000m  U17 Boys 5000m
U19 Girls 4000m  U19 Boys 6000m

The outline of the course is below. Click to enlarge.
