Kilcoole AC really did dominate at the Wicklow Road Race Championships in Ashford this evening. Not only did we have 50+ competitors out of the 160, but we also claimed medals in almost every category available.
Úna Britton was back in action at the “Sea Ray Relays” in Knoxville Tennessee, competing in the 5000m on the track. She ran a fabulous PB of 16:53, running under 17 minutes for the first time. It wasn’t all that long ago that Úna would run 21 or 22 minutes in races like the Wicklow 5k Road Race, so this progress is a testament to her hard work and dedication over the last few years. Our juveniles (and seniors) would be well advised to take note: work hard and listen to the right advice! Úna is now setting her sights on the 10,000m this Thursday at the “Drake Relays” in Iowa. That new PB suggests she is capable of running in the low 35s for 10,000m, so no pressure Úna!
