Provisional results of today’s cross country finals are here. Any queries should be referred to firstname.lastname@example.org. Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to all who helped. The top 15 individuals and top 3 teams in each age group go forward to the Connacht finals which take place in Sligo on Saturday 15th October in Sligo. I will publish more precise details on the venue and start time when it has been announced.
We make a mistake in the team results announced earlier at the event where in the 5th/6th class girls, a data entry error omitted a Claregalway NS runner and when corrected, Claregalway NS take the gold medals. We will order a new set of medals for Claregalway and the other teams can retain their medals and we will seek to put 4 teams through to the Connacht finals.
Also to the children who have taken part in the semifinals or finals of the primary schools cross country who are not already in an athletic club, you may be interested in the club competition that is coming up on the first 2 Sundays of October.
