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!

Club Motto: Nobody said it was easy
We are now at capacity for all groups from ages 7-12 yrs old. A number of new members will be doing a couple of weeks trial and some places may open up after this. If you wish to put your child on our waiting list, please send details through 'Contact Us' above and we will get back to you asap! Places are still available in the 5-6 yr old group & the 12+ groups!
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.
RETURN TO TRAINING
We have now been back training for three weeks and while attendance so far has been great by many with tremendous work being done, it has been poor in some groups particularly on Friday nights. We look forward to a big improvement this coming week and remind everyone that we cannot hold places indefinitely for athletes who don’t attend regularly, as we have waiting lists on most groups.
We hope you all had a great summer and what an amazing summer it was! Here’s hoping the great weather continues on into September. We hope you all had a good rest and that you have been back running and gradually building up the miles over the past few weeks,
All roads led to Tullamore for the first three weekends of July, as athletes, coaches & parents set off to the National Championships full of excitement and hopeful of ending the Track & Field season with good performances.
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!
