Thank you to all Na Fianna Athletic Clbu for hosting our Even, Novice and Master Cross Country event in Moyvalley on 25th October, 2015 and to all our athletes who took part, parents, coaches and family members who came along to support.  A great day of competition was held with many great performances on the day.  A special thanks to all the club/county officials who helped out on the day from both NaFianna and clubs in Leinster – the day cannot run with the support off all clubs and we seek continued support for our upcoming events.

We now look forward to Day 3 of our Cross Country Championships for our Uneven ages and Intermediate athletes.  These Championships will be held in John F Kennedy Park and Arboretum, New Ross, Co Wexford and will be hosted by United Striders Athletic Club.
