Almost 36 years to the day the masses once again descended on The Phoenix Park, this time for Round Two of the Dublin Juvenile XC Leagues.
With big numbers in all races many turned up to do some groundwork in advance of the Even Age Championships which will be held here on 18th October.
Blackrock Athlete of the Meet was split between two Star Performances which almost book-ended the day! Take a bow Peter Walshe (U10) & Oisin Kelly (U15) both of whom secured 4th spot fighting their way through very large fields and extremely competitive races. There were fists & elbows flying in the U11’s race which had to go to a stewards enquiry … nobody likes to see that and delighted to say all other races went off without a hitch!
