CONGRATULATIONS

 

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.

CONGRATULATIONS

 

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.

RETURN TO TRAINING

 

We have now been back training for three weeks (two for the younger groups) and while attendance so far has been great by many with tremendous work being done, it has been poor in some groups, particularly Group 2. 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 still have a long waiting lists on most groups.
