Greystones Athletic Club is centred at the heart of the community and caters for all athletes young and old, beginners to internationals. Whether you just want to stay fit or compete at the highest level we are able to help. We have a large number of experienced, qualified and enthusiastic coaches who instruct a number of training groups including; Little Athletics, Fit4life, Road Running and specialist coaching groups for endurance, sprints, hurdles, throws and jumps. The club currently competes in a number of competitions from County to International level and we're sure we have something for you!
Club Motto: Nobody said it was easy
Sunday run next Sun. 24th Sept. is Devil's Glen. Warm up at 9.20am, ready to run by 9.30am. All club athletes
welcome, but children must be accompanied. This run is an important part of the training week for all our distance athletes. Another great run last Sunday, but again GAC was not very well
represented. We really need to see a much better turn-out this coming Sunday!
RETURN TO TRAINING
We have now been back training for two weeks and attendance so far has been poor in many groups. We look forward to a big improvement this coming week and remind everyone that athletes who don’t attend for 3 weeks without notification, are assumed to have left the club, so if we haven’t seen or heard from you by the end of this week (Fri 22nd Sept), we will be removing you from our lists. We cannot hold places indefinitely, as we have waiting lists on most groups.
We hope you all had a great summer and that you have been back running and gradually building up the miles over the past few weeks, as requested in our last Newsletter in July and so are all coming back 'Fit to Train'. Our first Cross Country events are coming up very quickly, with Round 1 of the XC League for U8-U15 on Fri 15th Sept in Roundwood and the County XC Champs at the beginning of Oct.
Well done to all of our club athletes who competed in the National Championships recently and who represented the club so well, though it was disappointing that so many failed to turn up for their events this year. Many congratulations to the medal winners and to all who earned PB's.
BRAY INVITATIONAL EVENT
The Annual Bray Invitational Event takes place this coming Tues. 20th June in Greystones. We are only allowed a limited number of athletes for this event and so priority will be given to those who have competed in the recent County & Leinster events. Any places left after this will be allocated on a first come first served basis. The entry form is on our website and will close on Sat. 17th.
There will be no training for the 6-7pm or 7-8.30pm groups this Tuesday due to this competition. Little Athletics 5-6pm will go ahead as normal.
