Jennifer Elvin was victorious in Wicklow

Finn Valley AC’s Jennifer Elvin won the women’s senior race at the Irish Mountain Running Trials in Wicklow on Saturday.

Last weekend, Elvin led the way for Finn Valley’s masters over-35 team, alongside Teresa Doherty and Leoni Mullen, as they won silver at the latest version of the Road Relays.

Elvin had a strong cross country season and had helped Finn Valley to silver at the National Road Relays in Raheny in October.

Elvin’s win in Wicklow means that she will be a part of the Irish Mountain Running Association team for the European Athletics Off-Road Running Championships from July 1-3 in El Paso, Spain.
