What goes bump in the night?
CNOC held the final race of the Dublin by Night series on the Curragh. The courses were planned by Seamus and were well recieved - generally. Seamus himself had the fastest time on the course coming home in 30mins, Colm was 2nd in 31 and Ruairi Short 3rd in 32mins.
The short course was probably slightly overly challenging.
Don manned the computers, then legged it off home to catch the rugby, as well as a few of the DNFer's on the Long. Needless to say, many were disappointed.
Results and Routegadget etc are here.
Well it ain't Ruairi Short! Ruairi walked away with the Dublin by Night series win. With 2 induvidual wins and 2 runners up spots and a lost SI card, it was enough to give him the win 297 points clear of Three Rocks Gerard Butler. Ex CNOC athlete Aonghus "Guss" Cleirigh (M50) took the final podium place. On womans long, Ruth Lyman was well clear of Mary O'Connell (Three Rock).

Last week the Leinster Spring Cup kicked off. The first race was held in Rossmore Forest Park hosted by Fingal. CNOC had 7 athletes present. Caomihe and Siobhan did a 1,2 on Green. Colm and Ruairi did a 1,2 on Brown and Ruth Lynam was 3rd on Blue behind 2 M16s that were going neck and neck. Tony Lawlor was 2nd M45 on Blue also. Results and stuff here.
This weekend was the Leinster Spring Cup on Brockagh. This was hosted by GEN and included tea and coffee afterwards. A bigger turn out of CNOC runners with 9 showing up. Results and stuff here.
Next weekend is a Leinster Spring Cup on Glendasan (across the road from Brockagh). It incorporated the Student Champs and it also has a prize for King of the Mountains. Clearly this leg alone will make it be worth travelling to the event for!
