Preparations well advanced for return to training at the Club

It’s all systems go for a welcome return to group training for our underage athletes next Tuesday evening. Despite being closed since Christmas, thanks to the Trojan work over the last few months by our hardworking grounds man, Dave, the grounds are in fantastic condition. Before everyone gets too excited about the return though, it’s really important that everyone training at the Club has paid their membership, so they are registered with Athletics Ireland and are covered by its insurance. Membership is due every January, so if you haven’t paid this year yet, please do so this week so you can receive the link to pre-register for training. Remember, you can’t just turn up to training, everyone has to pre-register, including the coaches, and once there, everyone also has to be checked in.

Round six of the Virtual Medley Road League this weekend

As everyone that has been taking part in the virtual medley road league will know, the plan had been for six rounds, with the final one a 6k group run in Belvedere this coming weekend. However, with Belvedere closed until next Monday and adults still unable to meet up for group training or runs, round six has been changed to a 3k solo run instead. If adult outdoor, non-contact training is allowed to resume after the May Bank Holiday weekend, a round seven will be added at the earliest possible Sunday, which will be a two lap 6k of Belvedere in groups of 15.

Congratulations to Lt. Ian McCormack

Congratulations to Lieutenant Ian McCormack who fulfilled a long time ambition and received his army commission recently. Everyone at the Club wishes Ian a long and successful career in the army. Staying with things military, we wish the very best to Lt. Elizabeth Carr who will be travelling to the Lebanon in May as part of the latest UNIFIL peacekeeping mission. This will be Elizabeth’s first tour abroad and we wish her a safe and successful one.
