This weekend was once again racing packed. CNOC college athletes took part in the IMRA College Champs on Camaderry. Results will be available here
Sunday dawned bright and CNOC's college elite hobbled out of Ruiri's car.
The rest of CNOC also showed up and we had 14 runners out on the rough slopes of Glashaboy Brook (the bottom of Fair Mountain).
The ground was rough, the going was slow but the sun was out. Best runs of the day went to Seamus O'Boyle, 2nd on Brown. Don got the better of Tony also on Brown.
On the blue, Ruths O box got pilfered by "elites" that just happened to forget all of their O kit. Needless to say, lack of compass didn't stop Ruth as she finished up fourth on Green, right behind her was Billy O'Neil and Brian Hill had a strong run in the tough terrain finishing seconds behind in 6th. Pocket Rocket Caoimhe O'Boyle was 2nd junior female on Green, beaten by less than two mins by Roisin Long.... Long legs surely helped in that terrain!
Eileen Loughman finished 3rd on L. Green with the terrain getting the better of Sean Ryan and M16 (not the weapon) Keith O'Conner. On the Blue the terrain also got the better of Bernie and Deirdrea. All four will no doubt be back to fight another day.
A successful day non the less for CNOC once again.

For those that bothered to scroll down this far, CNOC has had a new Elite signing in preparation for the JK International Festival of Orienteering.... Same height, different person
