Please note that there will be NO TRAINING for the 5-6pm & 6-7pm groups this coming week, because of the mid-term break. The 7-8.30pm groups will train as usual. It is very important that all relay runners attend on Tues & Wed evenings for training, before their event on Saturday next.
Well done to Jack McGlone, Tom McCarthy, Colm O’Neill and Emma Wylie who competed in the National XC Championships recently in Abbottstown and Dunboyne.
Hugh congratulations to Brian Geraghty who led the Irish M45 team to silver medals in the Home Counties XC in Ainfield recently. Brian finished 5th overall in the M45 section, a fantastic performance particularly for someone so new to XC!
Well done to Joe Dowd running 16.29 in the Jingle Bells 5K on Dec. 7th ,where he improved on last year’s time by 32 secs. Great running guys!
Well done to all who competed in the recent Leinster XC Championships in Gowran & Ferbane. The Club greatly appreciates your support and participation. We have found over the years that athletes who take part in competitions get so much more out of their participation and enjoy being part of their teams. These athletes acquire long term health and social benefits, and are less likely to drop their fitness as young adults.
Well done to all who competed in the recent County XC Championships in Roundwood & Avondale. The Club appreciates your support and participation. We have found over the years that athletes who take part in competitions get so much more out of their participation and enjoy being part of their teams. These athletes acquire long term health and social benefits, and are less likely to drop their fitness as young adults. We were disappointed with the very poor attendance both days and failed to make up teams in many age groups, but we were impressed with the performances of those who did compete at these events.
