The GloHealth (National) Intermediate, Masters & Juvenile ’B’ XC Championships of 2015 take place at the Palace Grounds, Tuam, Co.Galway on Sunday 08th of February next. The day’s proceedings kick off with the Juvenile races at 11.30am with the first of the adult races commencing around 1pm. The BARRS’ ladies intermediate team won Silver medals at the 2014 event in Dunboyne, Co. Meath. The Cork County Athletics Board has kindly put on a BUS for TUAM, which will depart from Patrick’s Quay (at the rear of the Metropole Hotel), at 07:45am SHARP. Be on time to secure a good seat!
With the Six Nations on the Horizon, this is an ideal opportunity to see just how low-lying those fields of Athenry really are. Sunday’s forecast is for high pressure over Ireland, which should provide for good running and good scenery. Nevertheless, it will doubtless be on the cold side, so be sure to pack enough gear. You don’t want the order of Malta wrapping you up in tin foil after the race. Give yourself plenty of options!
