Fantastic running! In the end an excellent day for a 42k ‘stroll’ in Dublin. The dreaded weather of yesterday, rain and wind, stayed away today and it even turned into a nice late summers day (very late though). Well done to the St. Coca marathon runners who all got over the line after a hard campaign of weeks. All of the runners can be extremely proud of the achievement today, a marker in life, times can be found on the fit4life page.
Kildare Cross Country
Great performances and results all round in the two Cross Country days – see the results page for details. Photos from 13th October (day2) below.
Club note Sept 2013
Training resumes for all members on Monday 2nd September at 7pm. New members from 8 years are also welcome. Over the next couple of weeks training will continue as normal on Monday and Wednesday at 7pm. The cross country season will be commencing so the training will be geared towards these competitions. We will also have a long slow run on Sundays either in Donadea or the field behind Scoil Dara at 11am. This will be an easy run which parents will be able to do and we would encourage you to consider doing this run with your children.
Coaches needed With the increase in numbers coaches are urgently needed to assist with training. Athletics Ireland provide a one day training course which is funded by the club. If you have an hour to spare one evening a week we could do with the help and you children and the other club members will really benefit. Contact 086 1650971 if you can assist…and don be shy.
