Club member Martina Kiely achieved a superb victory at the AAI National Masters Cross Country Championships on a cold and wet Sunday afternoon at the Dundalk Institute of Technology. In light rain over a fast course, the BARRS athlete ran a near perfect race leading out the field from start to finish.
The arduous trip to Dundalk was made all the more worthwhile as the BARRS Ladies delivered a Silver medal winning performance just a point behind Raheny. Martina Kiely, Sorcha Kearney, Riina Kuuselo and Niamh Cronin were the top four BARRS ladies followed by Irene Eighan, Margaret Lillis and Ann-Marie Healy.
In the M50 team category, Eamonn McEvoy, Willie Hayes, Tony O’Brien and Eddie Barry combined well to achieve a respectable 12th place. Margo Dinan and Marion Lyons represented the club in the F50 category.
