JWOC 2011 – Wejherowo, Poland

Five Irish runners are competing at the Junior World Champs in Poland.  Cillin Corbett, Jack Millar, Colm Moran, Josh O’Sullivan-Hourihan, and Conor Short have spent 4 days training in the beech and pine forests near Gdansk in northern Poland.  Much of the terrain consists of hills up to 50 m high, but highly runnable and with excellent visibility.  Other training areas are more reminiscent of Swedish terrain – lower hills and marshes, but still very good running.
Tomorrow Sun 2nd the competition starts off with the Sprint, the Long Distance is on Mon 3rd, the Middle Qualification and Final are on Wed 5th & Thur 6th, and the final race is the Relay on Fri 8th July.
Internet access allowing we hope to have updates and reports from the team as the competition progresses.
