6Hr Relay

Dear Members, Another busy weekend for some of our members. First up was our annual fundraiser our 6 hour relay, with Niamh Cahill getting the relay started at 10am.    With many members coming and going all day running a few laps or in Aoife Lenehans case over twenty laps, some of the coaches got in on the fun even racing some.   Special mention to Paul Nolan who after attending last years relay set himself the challenge of running 10k on the day.  After obtaining sponsorship from and Nolan Associates he wasn’t going to back out and with great support provided to him on some laps by everyone completed the challenge at the end of a very enjoyable day.  206 laps were recorded on the day (82,400m) which was a fantastic achievement, a little birdie told me that some were lucky to be rewarded with burger and chips to replace energy at the end of the day, instead of having to use the foam rollers!!    The Committee would like to thank Shane, Michael, Elizabeth, Niall and all the Jnrs that helped run the day, anyone that ran laps, or provided treats.  Please check out our Facebook page for more pictures.  Training has now finished for the summer and will be back on Monday the 4th of September and Thursday nights training resuming on the 14th of September.  Thank you to those who have already returned their sponsorship cards/contributions.  The club will be opened the week of the 24th-28th of July from 10am-2pm, if you would like to return your sponsorship card, or please let me know if you would like to return it before then.  Hope you all have a lovely summer break and see you all in September, Thanks Fergal & Committee
