Well done to Tuam AC on hosting an excellent event.
Special mention to our youngest athletes who painted a sea of green and white singlets in the U9 races with no less than 34 athletes from the club completing the girls and boys 800m. Overall, the club had 80 athletes take part in the races – the largest of all participating clubs. Well done to all of our athletes and particularly well done to our hard working coaches.
