We will get back to you as soon as a place becomes available. We are still accepting athletes in our Little Athletics group (5-6 yr olds), our 11+ groups and our adult groups.
A terrific session this morning for our young squad, with great enthusiasm from athletes and coaches alike and terrific weather as well. Well done to everyone who attended and a huge thank you to our coaches for their time & expertise! Round 2 will follow in about 4 weeks time!

A VERY LONG NEWSLETTER THIS TIME, BUT PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT AS IT CONTAINS A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CLUB ATHLETES AND PARENTS.
WICKLOW XC CHAMPIONSHIPS
Fantastic results from both Sunday’s at the Wicklow XC Championships, despite a very big percentage of our club athletes failing to attend. On day 1 we had barely 20% of our athletes in attendance, but despite this we got 7 individual medals and team medals in the Girls U10, U14 & U16 and Boys U16 & U18
Welcome back to all our athletes and coaches and a big welcome to all our new athletes. We hope everyone is well settled in at this stage, enjoying the training and looking forward to the Cross Country (XC) season. Attendance at training has been poor in a couple of groups and we are now removing all athletes who have not returned at this stage, as we have long lists of people waiting for places. We cannot hold places indefinitely!
RETURN TO TRAINING
We hope you have all enjoyed a good rest at this stage and are all now eagerly preparing to return to training. We sincerely hope that you have all followed our request to start back running, are now doing a reasonable run every second day and will be more than ready to start training when we return.
Most athletes & coaches are now on a well earned break after a great summer of competition, where we had some outstanding performances from many of our athletes. Enjoy the rest, but do spare a thought for the girls still training and wish them well as they continue their preparation to compete in the European Clubs Cup in Portugal in September, where they took the bronze last year!
Training for our younger groups ie 5-6pm & 6-7pm sessions, has now finished for the summer. We hope all our young athletes enjoyed the final night's games & the goodies afterwards & we look forward to seeing you all back in Sept. A huge 'Thank You' to our coaches and an appeal for more help in Sept. please. Have a great summer everyone.
