The KCH banner added to the colour at the NCAA cross country championships held in Thomas Zimmer course in Madison, Wisconsin, USA today. Athletes and supporters alike awoke this morning to see everthing covered in snow. The US being well prepared for such weather the roads and car parks were cleared of snow by 8.00am. Likewise with the start and finish areas of the cross country course. KCH athletes, Aoibhe Richardson, running with Portland college, and Peter Lynch running in the colours of Tulsa Hurricanes, were in fine form and did their bit for their respective colleges. Aoibhe ran the 6Km course in 20.45 and placed 57th. Peter completed his 10Km course in the excellent time of 30.47.1 and was the first of his team across the finish line. This was a huge experience for these athletes and will undoubtedly give them great confidence in whatever lies ahead.
