Dublin MAsters XC 2018 03

The 2018 edition of the Dublin Masters Cross Country Championship took place yesterday in St. Anne's Park. Some 280 athletes made it to the start line of the men's race.

The conditions were reasonable with only the start being very muddy but it is a tough 6k course of four laps. The sun was shining but it was still cold and luckily the prevailing wind was only against the runners when in the trees so was barely noticeable.

Unfortunately, due to injury and illness only three MSB athletes were able to get to the start line so not enough for a team score.

Mel Hilliard was first MSB over the line in 106th place and 15th in the M45 category followed by Mark Woodger in 153rd and Jason Murray in 204th

MSB results are as follows with full results here:

Place Name Time Cat Sub Cat
106  Mel HILLIARD 00:25:09  M (106) M45 (15)
153  Mark WOODGER   00:26:11  M (153) M45 (22)
204  Jason MURRAY 00:27:40  M (204) M40 (67)

Also, thanks to Raheny Shamrocks for hosting this great event.
