Thursday 15th August.

Another great turnout at our Thursday training session, we had 30 athletes in the park tonight. Great to see Emer and Gary both fresh looking and well after their exploits in the Alps. We would like to welcome Audrey Power to our club, very impressive in training tonight and last Thursday, we are sure she will be a great asset to our club. Next Thursday we will have our 5k Club C/ship, (see earlier post) hope to see you all there.

Malahide Parkrun

Only results to hand from the weekend are from the Malahide Parkrun, in which 440 athletes took part.
Chris Morgan clocked a very impressive 17:46, coming home in 6th place.
Bill Stanley clocked 18:43, coming home in 16th.

A note from Bill,

Parkrun is a great inititiative and always a good opportunity to practice racing, have a good tempo workout, or just go for an all out race effort. Full details at


On Thursday 22nd August we will hold our Club 5k C/Ships, in Shanganagh, with a race start time of 7pm. Registration from 6.30. We hope as many athletes as possible will make themselves available to compete in this prestigious event. Juveniles are very welcome and may race over our 3k course instead of the 5k. The overall winner of the mens and ladies race (senior athletes) will be declared Club Champions 2013. Similar will apply to juveniles. Winners will also be declared in all the usual age categories.

Short notice, we know, but why not come along and meet your fellow club members and maybe we can turn this into a bigger and better event in the years to come.
