Second in 74:52 was Ciaran McKenna of Star of the Sea AC  while third in 76:14 was Wayne Waldron of Donore Harriers. In July, when he wasn’t pushed as hard, Arroyo had won the summer version of this race in 75:52 The first woman was Jennifer O’Sullivan in 90:31, followed by Mairead Roche of Raheny Shamrock AC in 94:41 and Katherine Teeling of Coast Road Runners in 94:43. In the associated 5-mile race, the winners were Ian Fitzgerald of Donore Harriers in 27:57 and Emily Shiels of Crusaders AC in 31:53.

    Back after three years  on Sunday (Nov 27) was the Meet and Train (or Meet and Race)  a cross-country league organised by clubs for clubs  which was started initially to entice women who had trained for the women’s mini marathon to keep racing over the winter months — and to join their local clubs. Sunday’s two-mile race was hosted by a crack crew from Dunboyne AC in the well named Cow Park, a local field  which  can be challenging in wet conditions. Fortunately the weather behaved  and, with the finish line in sight, Aoife Carroll of Sportsworld AC sprinted away for a solid victory in 12 mins 12.59 secs. Second in 12:13.04 was Niamh Corby of Crusaders AC, third in 12:13:09 was Christin Scollard of Blackrock AC and fourth in 12:13.14 was Sinead Tighe of Brothers Pearse.
    Among those running was almost the entire Dublin Marathon team from Waterstown Warriors; although Anne O’Donnell, winner of the W75 title  in both the  national and Dublin championships, was taking a break. 
    Other teams who had entered teams included Donore Harriers (among them the Donore Divas and the Donore Dawdlers), Esker, Love2Run, Lucan Harriers, Clonliffe Harriers, Waterstown Warriors and host club Dunboyne AC. Getting the biggest cheers of the day was 84-year-old Anne Woodcock of Donore Harriers; an example to us all. Teams will be graded for the next round, but in the meantime, Crusaders AC lie top of the table ahead of Sportsworld RC and Blackrock AC.  Since the league consists of four rounds with the best three results to count, new clubs are welcome to join in the fun.
