Brilliant performance by Kevin Maunsell

The Autumn Cross Country Challenge took place today at Abbotstown in ideal summer like conditions. In the Senior men’s race competition was very keen. Here Kevin Maunsell ran a great race, going out with the leaders he was well positioned throughout the race. At the end of the first lap he was in a group of athletes sharing the lead, this lead changed many times during the race over the five-lap course. Kevin maintained that strong pace to finish a very creditable 5th in 23 mins 19 secs, a brilliant start to his Cross-Country season.
