Venue - Moyglass
The Tipperary Uneven Age Cross Country Championships were held in Moyglass and Nenagh Olympic athletes did very well. The course was dry but had several long drags and the strong wind made running conditions tough. We finished the day with a host of individual medals as well as a team gold and three county champions.
This was the first event of the day and Christine Percy was our sole participant. She had a super run to finish in 4th place over the 600m course.
In the boys u9 race there were some fine performances, Ben Walsh ran very well and finished in 6th place, Conor Hodgins also did well for his 10th place finish and Darragh O'Dwyer was 27th .
Our girls u11 performed well with Ellen O'Shaughnessy in 14th , Emma Mulcahy 17th and Hannah Grace 22nd.
The Boys u11 race had the best finish of the day, with four Nenagh athletes all fighting for the title. Alex Reynolds prevailed in the sprint finish as he narrowly held off Luke Purcell with Tom Walsh in 3rd and Cian Hodgins in 5th. Well done lads on some great running. Also in this race and helping the lads to a team gold was Aidan O'Dwyer in 16th and Eoin Moloney in 20th.
Lucy Mulcahy finished in 11th place in the girls u13 race missing out on a medal by one position.
