Gerry BradySep 19 2015, 2:01pmSarah finished 9th which is an excellent run. 2014 Ugandan junior champions Sally Chesang moved up to senior level to win from three British runners.
Richard NunanSep 19 2015, 5:43pmWell done Sarah, that's incredible running at the worlds.
Peter O'FarrellSep 21 2015, 10:02amWell done to Sarah with an incredible top ten finish and also to Ian Conroy with a top 25 in the men's senior race.
With the merest hint of clubmate bias well done to Brian Furey who displayed his competitive instincts to move from 6th Irish runner into 3rd and a scorer in the final 2km.

Great run by Ian Conroy for 24th place in the World Mountain Running Champs, on the 21st September.

The television broadcast of the World Mountain Running Champs from Wales will be on 3rd October at 07.05 on Channel 4. It'll be available on 4OD afterwards and available on YouTube 2 weeks later for those wishing to watch outside of the UK.

It'll also be available to watch on Sky Sports 3 on the 27/28th October.

Ian was around 10% behind the winner, and reigning World champion, from Uganda
