Sunday run next Sun. 15th April is Roundwood Resevoir. Meet for warm up at 9.20am, ready to run by 9.30am. All club athletes welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult. (Adult doesn't have to run) This run is an important part of the training week, especially for our endurance groups. Hoping to see a good turn-out from GAC. next Sunday!
March proved to be a fairly chaotic month, with high winds, lots of rain & even more snow, which resulted in competitions having to be re-arranged, but we managed to hold all training sessions despite the weather. Well done to all the coaches & athletes who turned up in all weathers to train.
Hope everyone has managed to stay nice & warm this week and you have all had lots of fun in the snow. We hope to get back to normal training this coming week, with all groups back on Tues. evening at their usual times. However this will be subject to weather conditions and the track being open, so please keep an eye on our website & FB page for updates.
A big welcome to all our new members, a welcome back to all members who have re-registered for 2018 and an urgent reminder of our regular message about suitable attire for winter training.
Well done to all the athletes & coaches who made it back to training last week in challenging conditions. Some great sessions were done despite the weather! Hoping to see everyone else back this week, as all groups are back training from tonight Tues 9th Jan
Well done to all of our club athletes who competed at the Leinster XC Championships and congratulations to all the medal winners. Sadly, numbers were well down this year, but those who did run produced some great performances, with several athletes qualifying for Nationals.
