Saturday 19th November saw the inaugural Newbridge Athletic Club Open Cross Country in a sunny, but icy Newbridge College. We had more than 150 kids from U8 to U14 taking part from Newbridge, Kildare, Crookstown Millview and Suncroft Athletic Clubs.
Kildare Athletic Club took the overall club honours on the day, just passing out Newbridge in the final event.
Well done to all the athletes who represented our club so well, capped by fine individual wins by Anna White and Cathal White in the U12 races.
Huge thanks to all the club members, parents and coaches who helped out on the day and to those who provided sponsorship and supplied refreshments.
Massive thanks to our neighbouring clubs for supporting this event and making it so successful.
Thank you also to all parents, family members and friends for braving the cold and offering such great support to the kids today.
Thanks to Cohlin Donovan for capturing the day so well with the fantastic photography.
Finally, thank you and congratulations to all the athletes who took part. We hope you enjoyed the day and have all thawed out by now.
