Rás na hÉireann

Sunday, 5th February 2017




A handful of MSB atheltes took part in the annual Rás na hÉireann in the grounds of Oldbridge House in County Meath, site of the famous Battle of the Boyne. Although it was a frosty day the sun shone brightly.

The event has been going since 1970 and is always a brilliant event in the cross country calendar. There were some 600 athetes taking part in the various races happening over the course of the day

Great performances all round from all the MSB athletes in the various events and categories. The Bolton family featured quite heavily in the results with father and daughter taking home the bragging rights!
