Lough Key Forest Park, near Boyle was the venue for the annual Woodie's DIY AAI National Intermediate and Masters Cross Country Championships last Sunday. The scenic surroundings were a bit lost in the gloom of a frosty, foggy, February day. However, the parkland course was a good test for all four races held in chilly but mainly solid underfoot conditions. Mayo AC had a great turnout of 20 athletes, which represents a heartening revival of interest, and their four teams included athletes running cross country for the first time. Competition, as usual, was fierce with club and county honours at stake as well as individual age categories in the masters races. Despite not winning any medals this year there were some excellent performances. Ann Lennon ran strongly and was 16th overall in the Masters Women's 4k .She led the team to fourth club, albeit well outside the bronze points. Robert Malseed was in fine form — 12th in their masters race — just a week after his 32nd place in the Barcelona Half Marathon in an excellent 72.14. The masters o35 team were ninth club, while the o50s team were sixth. In the Intermediate men's race, Mayo AC were sixth club and were led home by another good run from John Byrne in 14th overall. Their four top finishers - John Byrne, TJ McHugh (37) Anto Devaney (62), Timmy Glavey (69), plus Roger Barrett (20) and Michael Canty (91) of Ballina AC, - brought Mayo to fourth place Inter County.
