It was a dry day and the Le Cheile athletes were in great form, for some it was going to be their debut cross county. They warmed up and awaited the first race which was the girls U9, Carrgh Hayes was the clubs only competitor. Carragh got out well and ran a great 500m race. Next up was Joshua Dunne he was running in the U9 500m, Joshua lead from the start, he held his nerve and was just pipped at the post to finish Second. Rachel Dillon was running in the U13, this was her first race being new to the club. Rachel had a very good run and was supported by all her family. The boys U13 had a full team made up of Sean Flanagan, Conor kiely, Darragh nolan, Conal Hayes and Patrick Flanagan (Conal and Patrick running out of age. The boys were very determined as the took to the line and each one of them had great runs, all their efforts paid off as they won this team event Fiachra McSuibhne competed in the u15 and was running out of age, Fiachra had run in the Liz McDonnell run the previous day and this took a little from his performance, however he sprinted to the finish line - cheered on by the other athletes. Conor Murphy ran in the u17 boys and this was a 3k race, Conor had a good run and was happy with his performance. Erica and Aine were due to run in the U19, unfortuantely this race was being run with the intermediate women and time ran out on Aine as she had to leave before the race started as she was playing Basketball. Erica was running out of age, a distance of 3k and there was a big field in this race, Erica put in a good run.

So a great result for the club given the low numbers that were competing. Well done to all.

Well done to all the Le Cheile athletes who also supported the Liz McDonnell run in Castletown Celbridge, young and old!
