Tullamore Harriers Report 23rd September 2019

Cuddy and Law in action in Wales  

 

The Junior International Mountain Running Championships between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland took place in Wales at the weekend. They took place in Llanberis, a village in Gwynedd, northwest Wales, on the southern bank of the lake Llyn Padarn and at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. The 7.1km route was to the top of Moel Elio Peak and back, with 477m ascent from the elevated starting point and 554m descent to the village. Cian Law and Dearbhail Cuddy represented Ireland and did great to finish 19th and 20th in their respective races.  Both are in great shape and hopefully representing Ireland will encourage them to continue with their commitment to the sport.
