Volunteers

Thanks again to the parents who have 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 103 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.

Finally, the very best of luck to Grainne competing in the National Schools Combined events at the AIT this Saturday and good luck to all our cross country runners competing in Offaly.
