CLUB WINTER LEAGUE, ROUND 1.
We had a good turnout for the first round 1 of our Winter League tonight, 24th Oct. 16 athletes took part, with another couple timekeeping and providing bike support. It was great to see Emer, Andrea and Des present as they put the final touches to their preparations for Monday's marathon. We wish them and all those taking part in the marathon the best of luck and hope to see you all at next weeks training session. It was also great to see Grainne Cunningham back at Thursday training, and running very well indeed. Sandra Brady is also very welcome back, after a long layoff through injury, Sandra is now running very well again. On behalf of our Chairman, committee and all our members we would like to extend a warm welcome to Ivan Walsh to our club. This was Ivan's first night with us, we hope he enjoyed it and am sure he will be a great asset to the club in the future.
The first event in our league was a 3k race. Some great performances, as you can see from the times below, with Denis Patterson winning the first race in the first Bray Runners Winter League. The next round will be on Thursday 7th Nov, a 4k predictor, (you predict your time, equal to or nearest their predicted time is the winner, no watches). Training, as usual, next Thursday at 6.30, from our new winter headquarters, St. Killians College. Our new base is proving very popular with our Thursday group.
