First up on Wednesday Layla finished as 1st Juvenile female (18:42) on the short course at the Devil’s Glen IMRA race. Well done Layla!
Wednesday evening was also time for the Wicklow County 5k Championship. All roads led to Jack Whites as 19 club members took on the out-and-back course in both hot and windy conditions.
This was the first year that athletes from outside Wicklow took part which meant for even more competition. Well done to everyone below who all put in amazing performances in the club colours. Big thanks to everyone who came out to support the runners too.
We were also delighted to see Gary secure Bronze in the M40 category, Stan also securing Bronze in the M50 category while Gary, Cormac and Stan took home bronze in the M35 Team category.
