Last weekend saw some of our juniors training with the Irish squad, the first session was held in the Phoenix Park where they were put through their paces on the time trial course the weather was good which meant the underfoot conditions were good, we saw some fast times with most improving on their previous best over the course.
In the afternoon the squad moved to the miners village in Glendalough where they ran a number of short routes to test their navigational skills, Butterfly loops and in and out the day finished with a short 2km relay of three per team. It was back to the hostel in Glendalough for an overnight stay, hot showers and hot food before debriefing and lights out ???
On Sunday the squad moved to Newcastle Demesne Co Longford and ran in the Leinster summer series where they all had good runs. (Check IOA for results)
Well done and thanks to all involved in organising the weekend, I can't name everyone for fear of leaving someone out, well done and thanks again.....
