Manchester Marathon

Team manager Keith Heffernan had his hands full looking after the Ratoath a/c marathon squad that participated in the recent Manchester marathon. The old policy of "what happens on tour , stays on tour" was strictly enforced and none of the participants were prepared to comment on the social aspects of the weekend other than to confirm their finishing times and AAI registration numbers. Hugh Kelly led the gang home in 3 hrs 40 mins, followed by Colm McDaid (3.42), Paul O Connell (3.49), Henry Fleming (3.52) and Ray Hoare (5.13). Well done to all.

Bram wings it at Malahide

Bram Jansen ran a new 5k PB of 18 mins 04 sec in the Malahide park run last weekend. Bram finished 4th overall. Its great to see him get the benefit of all those tough interval sessions he has been consistently doing on the track and there is plenty more improvement to come. Sub 18 mins is the next target

Day 3 National Juvenile Indoor Championships AIT - April 1st

Day 3 of the national juvenile indoor championships were held in Athlone on April 1st. Ratoath A/C had six athletes competing on the day and all acquitted themselves with distinction.

Sophie Quinn gave a masterclass in the girls u 13 600m. Having successfully negotiated a tough heat in the morning session, Sophie opened up with a blistering 29 sec for the opening 200m in the final and went on to take the gold in a very swift 1 min 41.69.

Matthew Buckley smashed his PB in the u 16 200m final to record 23.36 sec when taking silver and add to the bronze medal he recently won on day 2 over 60m.

Aimee Doherty made most of the early front running in the girls u 14 800m before finishing 5th in 2 min 26.13 sec while Eoin Kane ( u 13 600m), Caoimhe Fitzsimons (7th u 12 long jump) and Rafael McCaffrey ( u 16 200m) all acquitted themselves very well and will gain hugely from the experience of competing at national level.
