The 2023 B&J Chambers County Mayo Cross Country Championships were held on Sunday October 1. 

They were hosted by Westport AC in conjunction with Mayo Athletics County Board.

Evens underage events preceded two senior and masters races.


Competitions were well organised and ran to schedule.

Races took place over a one kilometre course at the Demesne. After a week dominated by rain and wind, a glorious sunny morning ensured running conditions were good.


There was one long hill and a few twists and turns on a very good grassy course, with a short uphill run to the finish line.

Well done to these six Mayo AC seniors and masters women competitors :

Martina O’Connor, Angela O’Connor, Eimear Fitzmaurice, Pauline Moran, Paula Donnellan, Mags Glavey and Joan Walsh


They competed in a race which also combined u18, and Juniors.

Congratulations to medal winners led home by Martina O’Connor - great running to win the senior gold. 

Angela O’Connor took the masters title and led Mayo  women's team to the winning line.
