Our weekly roundup continues even with the Christmas festivities! First up on Christmas morning four members braved the cold and heavy rain to take on Gorey parkrun. Huge well done to Stan (20:41), Slawek (23:51), Esme (27:45) and Geraldine (27:51) who have hopefully all warmed up by now! Also a big thanks and well done to event director Gareth for ensuring a great morning was had as always.
On Monday seven of the crew made the short journey to take on the return of the Croghan Chase 4k & 8k in Wexford. Well done to everyone on what is a hilly tough course. Thanks to photographer and cheerleader Justin for his sideline support!
