Urban Trail Series- Race 1, Dec. 2010

Updated on Dec. 19th, 2010

The first Race of the Urban trail series was held in Saint Anne's Park, Raheny on Dublin's North side on Saturday 18th Dec.

Despite a forecast for snow the day dawned bright with a light frost which helped stiffen the muddier patches to allow for a fast and enjoyable race.

The over all winner was Crusader's Jason Kehoe with a fast time of 30:40 ahead of Simon Devenney(33:14) and Erik Hemberg(35:08) in third place. In the Women’s race Laura Coleman came in first in a time of 39:59 ahead of Sonya Reilly (40:17) and Anita Toolan (43:19).

In the short race Gareth Shaw stormed home in 18:40 ahead of Tom Murphy(23:31) and David Kavanagh(24:32)in third position. First female home in the short race was Emma Billane in a time of 23:15 ahead of Martina Naughton (26:30) and Sharon Bell(28:37) in third place
