National Road Relays.
We were well represented at yesterdays National Road Relays in Raheny. Suzanne Foot and Ashling Smith were on the Sli Cualann Womens Masters Team and Gary Condon was part of the Mens Masters Team.
The womens team finished in an excellent 4th position, just edged out of 3rd place by Donore. Ashling Kirwan, Parnell AC, ran the first leg, 1mile in 6.01, Suzanne ran leg 2, 2mile in 12.16 and Ashling Smith ran a superb 5.52 for the final 1mile leg. Marvellous times from all 3 athletes.
In the Mens Masters Category there was some fine times recorded by Sli Cualann athletes, Bray Runners Gary Condon ran the 2mile leg for his team in a very impressive 10.29.
The senior men's team was competing in a high quality field. Donal Flannery got the quartet started with a 11:13 clocking for 2 miles. Then Padraig Lennon took over, covering his one mile leg in 5:10. Tim Grummell ran a good 16:02 for the 3 mile section, with Neil Wiktorski bringing the team home with a 10:40 two mile.
Well done to all who took part.
