Action turned to Crownpoint last night for the 2019 Young Athlete Christmas Handicap. With excellent conditions for running we saw over 50 young athletes turn up on the night.

Grace Hamilton crossed the line in first place to pick up the Girl Christmas Handicap Trophy getting the better of Macy Wilson (2nd Girl) by 16 secs. The bronze medal was won by Lucy Lambert.

The Boys Christmas Handicap Trophy was won by Lucas McGarrity with Jack Thompson 2nd and the silver medal by 1 second from Sam McGowan in 3rd place.

Zoe Roberts was the winner of the Under 9 Girl title and Andrew Orr who was 3rd overall picked up the Boys Under 9 title.

Erin Ellor was the fastest girl with a time of 6:08 and Cormac Daly was fastest boy with a time of 5:26

Fionnuala Ross, European Cross Country Team Silver Medallist 2019, came down to help present the trophies. She also collected the Paul Richfield trophy for outstanding contribution to the club this year. Thank you Fionnuala for coming down
