Gerry versus Europe in the Czech Republic
Well done to everyone that took part in last nights 5k – brilliant stuff all round. The next big event for the club happens on Friday evening at 6PM (7PM Irish time) when Gerry Ryan takes on the best that Europe has to offer over 10 kilometers of Czech roads. We all know how brilliant Gerry is, but it won’t be easy to get a medal, even for him. He’s at the top end of his age category and there are over 681 competitors arriving from 28 countries, including as per the website:
“28 European Federations will be represented by its athletes.
Germany will send 183 athletes, Czech Republic 160, Switzerland 43, Italy 38, Ukraine 34.“
The program for the event is here:
Having only decided to do this at the road relays last month, Gerry has been training hard since in preparation and said on Saturday night “whoever beats me will have to work for it, I won’t be giving anything away easily“.
All the very best of luck Gerry!
