Positive News - For a Change

For well over a year news items have been dominated by negativity, it need not be said, covid related, lockdowns, travel restrictions and the rest. On 25th April 2021, an exceptional athlete has in her own way broken the mould of that media long-playing doom and gloom record stuck in a rut. At the Cheshire Elite Marathon running competition, Aoife Cooke won the womenís race in a time of 2 hours, 28 minutes and 36 seconds, qualifying her to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Over the past year, with uncertainty in the air and many potential Olympians throwing in the towel, Aoife maintained her focus and composure on her multiple ten miles plus daily training runs.
Aoife has won her just reward. Well done and congratulations. Support Aoife as she heads off abroad to make her final training preparations at high altitude: https://ie.gofundme.com/f/aoife-cookes-olympic-dream?utm_campaign=p_cp_url&utm_medium=os&utm_source=customer.
