Trail and Hill news – Gerard Down
With no club participation in the previous two MMRA races, it was good to see Eagle AC involved in Sunday’s Claragh Mountain 7 K Millstreet. And it was a particularly good to see Denis Carroll running in what is only his second hill race – his first trail race was in Claragh in 2016.
Denis had already run in the BHAA 6 mile race earlier that morning, taking 2nd O/55, so his good performance was all the more impressive.
