Munster Masters Cross Country Championships

The Munster Juvenile Inter Club Relays & Masters Cross Country Championships were held on Sunday 20th Nov. in St. Augustine's College, Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. A calm, sunny crisp day greeted the competitors in what was ideal weather conditions and a perfect course.
Maria McCarthy & Bernie O'Mahony were our only two athletes competing in the Masters women 4 Km race. Maria, following her team bronze medal in the British & Irish Masters XC last weekend looked very strong from the start sitting in amongst the lead pack. She started to show here strength in the last kilometer when she lay in second place overall and was slowly reeling in the leader. Maria finished in second place overall and taking gold in her O40 age category. Bernie O'Mahony competing in the O45 category, had a very gutsy run, fighting all the way to the end. She finished 26th overall and was placed 8th in her category. Bernie was also just outside the county team gold medal when finishing 5th for the county. Well done to you both.
