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.

This was a brilliant performance by Sean who now has his sights firmly set on securing a place on the Irish Junior men’s team at the All Ireland Cross Country Championships in Ratoath, Co Meath on November 25th.
