Closer to home in Tuam, GCH had a late entrant in the National Race-walking Championsips in Caoimhe Phelan who recorded a fine time of 6:11 for the 1km race. This sets a new outdoor club record for the event. Under 15 Caitlin Podmore holds the clubs Indoor record for the same event.Congrats to Caoimhe’s former club on their very successful hosting of this big event.If other members of the club wish to try racewalking going forward they should advise their coach and some coaching could be arranged if numbers sufficient.
Next weekend we have the National U20 and U23 Championship to look forward to. Best of luck to all competing.
