Some results missed from last week were Aaron Egan winning a silver medal in the U10 boys 80m at the Allianz Cumann na mBunscol sports day, well done Aaron
Apologies but I also missed that the boys U11 team of Aaron and Ryan Egan and Samuel and Oisin Whelan won a silver medal at the Wicklow Team Event on Wednesday June 19th, apologies boys, great result.
It has also been brought to my attention that at a joint Hell and Back and school fundraiser for St. Cronans boys National School -Aaron and Ryan Egan were the first 2 to finish the 3.5km course ahead of over 750 participants!!! WOW AMAZING BOYS!!
Ferdia O’Sullivan jumped a new PB of 1.35m at the All Irelands on Saturday 20th June, well done Ferdia, a great result.
Finally a massive thank you from all involved with Bray Runners to everyone who helped out on Tuesday night at our invitational event. I think the whole thing went very well, we’ve received very positive feedback since.
A huge word of thanks has to go to Norbert for processing the results so efficiently. That's not to take away from every one of our other officials who did a fantastic job and made the whole thing run smoothly. Thank you to all who volunteered.
Well done to the athletes!
If Tuesday's invitational was a success from an organisational point of view, it was even more impressive from an athletics standpoint. Bray Runners A.C. has never won the invitational in the event's 23 year history, however we came very close on Tuesday.
We ultimately lost out to Greystones A.C. by just 19 points, so we should all be very proud of all our athletes who competed and did their part, whether those members made it through improving over time or those who have more recently joined us.
Have a look at the fantastic attachment that Norbert put together with all the facts and individual scores for Bray Runners, it makes very interesting reading.
July 13th & 14th Irish Life Health Juvenile All Irelands: Grainne O’Sullivan will represent the club in the U16 Girls Long Jump and 200m at Tullamore. Good luck Grainne
SUMMER HOLIDAYS: WE WILL BE TAKING A SUMMER BREAK AFTER THE INVITATIONAL UNTIL TUESDAY 6TH AUGUST
Appeal for parental assistance: We currently have 95 registered juveniles with the club and in order to maintain the smooth running of our training sessions we really could do with some more help. You do NOT have to be a runner, all you have to do is provide encouragement and support to our young athletes. Please feel free to speak to any of our coaches now or when we return in August re. helping out.
Finally, as this will be the last update until August I would like to say a huge word of thanks to all you parents who support and encourage your young athletes at numerous events throughout not only the county but the country. Without you bringing your kids to these events our club would not be in the strong position it is in today.
