December Update

Recent Updates:

The Woodie’s DIY Athletics Ireland Inter Counties and Even Aged Cross Country Champs was held in Santry Demesne on the 17th of November. Our own Roisin Treacy had qualified for and was competing in the under 12 event which was run over a 2000 metre course.Roisin finished an amazing 11th out of a very large field (the top 12 received medals). This was Roisin's first event at a national level and is a fantastic result.  Well done Roisin!

We've taken delivery of some new equipment for the junior coaches which will allow us to focus more on speed\agility\quickness type drills and some resistance based running, looking forward to seeing this in action over the coming weeks.

As our junior numbers continue to grow, the coaches are under pressure so if you would like to help assist or become a coach please let us know, any assistance greatfully received. We will be bringing back the senior roster shortly also.

Just a final reminder that track training is finished for the year, we will kick this off again in Janury, stay tuned for further updates.
