Yesterday at the picturesque surroundings of Clongowes Wood College in County Kildare, Joel Chambers once again rose to the occasion in finishing a brilliant 5th in the junior boy's race. This is a tremendous achievement to place so high in a race that includes talent the width and breadth of Ireland.
His journey started in January with the district races followed by the county and then provincial with qualification needed at each stage to progress further.
Joel has also recently received exciting news that he has been selected to represent Northern Ireland in the London Mini Marathon on Sunday 28th April over the final three miles of the full marathon route. The College is very proud to have another representative in this race following in the footsteps of former pupils Joel McWilliams and Martyn Quinn.
Good luck and enjoy the experience!
