Antrim IAAF Cross Country 4th Jan 2014

The Ratoath boys team  of Alex Hunter, Philip Marron and Brian Kiernan started the new year with a bang when they finished second team in a very competitive u 15 race at the Antrim IAAF cross country  held in the CAFRE campus, Greenmount, Antrim. The course was flat and generally fast but there were a couple of mucky spots and the cold and damp weather meant that the going was tough. Philip Marron went out very fast and, at one point, had a lead of 20m over the chasing pack which included Alex Hunter with Brian Kiernan providing excellent support in the mid twenties. Alex made his move on the second circuit and held the lead with just 400m to go but  was reined in on the run to the line by both Patrick Shaw(Leinster Athletics) and Darragh Drury (Shercock) to finish 3rd, with Philip in 7th and Brian, running his best cross country race yet, in 25th.
