No racing news this week but the important thing is a change of venue for THURSDAY training!! See below:

Training

Training will continue this Tuesday from 6.50-8pm for all athletes, meeting by the astro pitch in Shanganagh park.  

Change to Thursday training: Training will be on the promenade in Bray, meeting at the boathouse coffee shop 7-8pm (Southern end of the prom).  This session is open to all athletes born in 2007 or earlier.

This weeks Sunday run with Inbhear Dee will be in Avondale which will give all athletes a great opportunity to get together and run there before the upcoming county cross country champs., meeting at 9.20am for a 9.30am start.  It would be great to see as many of our athletes turn out as possible. This is open to anyone running U12's and up.  There will be a 30 minute run for the younger athletes and a 45 min run for the older athletes (with a warm-up and warm down).   Lifts are available for those requiring one, please speak to Joe, Suzanne or Emma.  

As the cross country season is rapidly approaching it is important for all athletes to take part in at least one of the weekly Thursday or Sunday runs in addition to the Tuesday training.  

For our younger athletes we would encourage you to take part in the junior parkrun (2km) held at 9.30am each Sunday morning in the Peoples Park in Bray.

There are still a pair of size 6 spikes in excellent condition looking for a new home.  If anyone is interested in these please speak to Ciara at Tuesday or Thursday training.

Thank you so much to the parents who recently volunteered to help out at training.  Without your assistance we would not be able to keep accepting new members.  We will keep the appeal going for parental assistance:  We now have 97 registered juveniles with the club and in order to maintain the smooth running of our training sessions we need help.  You do NOT have to be a runner, all you have to do is provide encouragement and support to our young athletes.  Please feel free to speak to any of our coaches about volunteering.
