COMBER CUP CROSS COUNTRY, DUNDONALD 

Rory Mulvaney and Meadow McCauley made the journey to Dundonald on Saturday afternoon for the prestigious annual Comber Cup XC. This event is one of the largest XC annual events to be held each year in Ulster with all the major clubs attending. 

After heavy rainfall overnight and with the school age groups running first and cutting the course up - ground conditions where very heavy going. The course also had a new layout with a lot of hill work and the mud added to the extra pain exertion on the legs. 

Meadow McCauley raced in the U17s 4K Race. She ran a strong race on the hills and mud. Her club winter endurance training has paid off along with her grit and determination - rewarding Meadow with a fabulous podium 3rd place in a time of 18:27. 

Rory Mulvaney had to take in the gruelling 8k course.  This was the finale race of the day  which meant the ground was now well cut up making the hill climbs and descents tough going. The race took off at a very fast pace but as it progressed competitors soon found their own pace and Rory finished well up the field of 187 athletes with 52nd position and 11th M35 in a time of 34:10.5. A good start to his XC season.
