On Sunday 11th November, Sean Tobin, Clonmel A.C. travelled to Burgos, Spain for the International Cross Country event where he competed as the sole Irish representative in the Junior Men’s 5871m race. Sean got caught at the start but soon managed to get out and gradually moved out of the chasing pack to close the gap on the leading group. He put in a tremendous effort that saw him catch everyone but the leader Bulgarian Mitko Tsenov, who went on to win in 17 mins 28 secs with Sean finishing 2nd in 17 mins 48 secs. Congratulations & well done Sean.
