Despite the wind and rain many of our young athletes turned out for the East Cork uneven age Cross country at Carrig na Bhfear. Conditions were tough for our juveniles on this long winding course but they didn't disappoint.

Clodagh Fitzgerald got the club off to a great start with a super run in the U9 girls race to come 3rd overall and win a bronze medal. Dylan Parker and Aidan McNamee were up next in the U9 boys race and won silver and bronze medals.

The U11 girls had a great run with Sorcha Kilgannon leading the field home to win gold. Alex Cashman was next in 4th position followed by Grace Rooney 6th and Eireann Barrett 10th. Tara Hickey came 11th followed by Ruby Kennedy 20th. Well done girls on winning gold club team medals.

Ben Walsh led the Youghal U11 boys home to finish 6th overall , followed by Jude Buckley 12th and Ronan Joyce 13th . These boys were 3rd team home and won bronze team medals . A brilliant result, as all three boys were running up an age.

Erin Joyce had a super run in the U13 girls race to finish 2nd overall and win a silver medal. Avril Cashman was next in 4th position and Natasha Kilgannon completed the team. These girls, all U12 running up an age , won team bronze medals.

Ciaran McNamee has a brilliant run in the U 13 boys race to win comfortably and obtain a gold medal. Eoin Fitzgerald was next in 9th position followed by Rory Motherway 11th and Ross Williams 15th. Well done boys on winning team silver medals.

Lesley Cashman and Kerry Barrett had great runs in the U15 girls race. Lesley was unlucky to loose out on a medal ,after what was probably the best sprint finish of the day and finished 4th. Kerry followed in 5th.

Aine O Regan had a super run in the U17 girls race to win a bronze medal. She was followed by Sarah Williams who also ran well.

Well done to the organisers who managed to run the races off very efficiently . The U17 girls ran with the senior women which saw Aine O Regan line up with her mother Celia. As the senior men's race started soon after we saw Ed O Regan running the same course too . Who said XC isn't a great family day out?
