Another great night for GAC at the Bray Runners Invitational T&F event. Fantastic performances from all of our athletes ensured that we won the Bourke Cup again for the 9th year in a row & our super relay squad of Pia Downing, Evan Quirk, Alexandra Mulcahy, Daniel Quirk, Jack McGlone & Joe Prendergast had a fabulous run in the Medley Relay to secure the Relay Shield for the 8th year in a row. Well done to all who took part & helped our club to shine once again!

Best of Luck to all GAC athletes competing in the National Championships in Tullamore this coming
weekend 14th/15th July. We have good numbers qualified, so hope you all have a great weekend!
Well done to all who competed in the Leinster Championships recently and huge congratulations to all who qualified for the upcoming Nationals. Lots of super performances in a variety of events and a great selection of medals & qualifiers to the All Irelands as a result!
Well done to all our club athletes who competed at the recent County Championships and a huge ‘Thank You’ to all the coaches & officials who made it all possible. Considering the large number of athletes in the club, athlete attendance numbers were disappointing, but what we lacked in numbers was more than made up for by the enthusiasm and effort put in by all those who did attend.
The Wicklow County Championships are fast approaching and all club athletes need to get their entries in asap to allow time to process them. Closing date is next Wednesday May 9th and events take place on Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May, starting at 11am each day.
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.
