Greystones AC has a long and proud tradition of catering for athletes of all ages and abilities in the community, and has achieved particularly strong engagement
and membership levels in our junior and juvenile categories.
In line with our tradition of catering for ALL ages and abilities, one of our goals for the coming season is to develop our senior and masters sections.
Developing our senior and masters categories is really important so that we provide continuity of our athletic community to our junior athletes as they graduate to
senior levels, and hopefully entice them to stay in the sport long enough to reach the masters category!
To achieve this, we are doing a couple of things:
We have appointed a (volunteer) liaison to act as a point of contact for any questions, suggestions or feedback: please contact Jenny on 087-2328401.
Suggestions, particularly, would be very welcome as we create something new!
Starting on Tuesday 1st October, we will have regular club training sessions for senior and masters athletes on the track at Shoreline every Tuesday and
Friday night, from 7 - 8:30pm.
Who should come?
If you are 18+, fit-ish, and harbour even the smallest bit of curiosity about getting back on the track, come along and give it a go. Once we understand people's
running goals, we will aim to have suitable training plans.
I am a complete beginner, should I come? If you are a complete beginner then the "Beginner2Winner" programme (also hosted at Shoreline) is
probably a better fit for you - it caters for people with little or no fitness levels, and those who want to get into a fitter and healthier lifestyle.
I have been running with the "Fit4Life" programme. How is this different? The main reason you would participate in the senior and masters
sessions rather than "Fit4Life" is because you have an interest in competing (without any obligation to) at cross-country, track or road events in the future. The senior and masters sessions will
be structured differently from "Fit4Life", with the goal of competition in mind. It doesn't mean you have to be good, just that you find the idea of competing exciting!
I used to run with Greystones AC as a junior, but haven't run recently. Is this for me? Absolutely yes! See you on Tuesday!
So, please JOIN us, help us shape it and try it out - no decisions are required for a few weeks!
If you have any query at all, call or message Jenny on 087-2328401.
