Track Sessions

Track sessions for our senior and junior athletes take place each Tuesday and Friday night at 7.30pm. Training has been very varied but is meeting with great approval from all who have availed of the sessions thus far.  Anyone interested in competing on the track is especially welcome at these training sessions.

Coaching Courses

The latest coaching courses on offer from Athletics Ireland are now up on their website  Two courses that may be of interest to club members and that are taking place in Tipperary are Assistant Coach in Clonmel on 07th October and Athletics Leader in our own clubhouse on 14th October.  The club is always looking for additional help at training so if there are any parents or even adult runners interested in contributing their time to the club please put your name down for either of these two courses.  On line entry is via the Athletics Ireland website but please contact Sinead McLoughlin as soon as possible to register.

Autumn 5K-Cancelled

Due to an unexpected bereavement in the parish our Autumn 5k on Sunday next 17th September has been cancelled as a mark of respect to the family, relatives and friends of the deceased.

Autumn 5k

The club are hosting our 3rd autumn 5K Fun Run/Walk on Sunday next 17th September at 12 noon over our usual Burma Route.  Prizes for the first 3 Men and Ladies.  Entry fee is €10 with refreshments served to all afterwards.  The course is a flat fast course and is an ideal preparation for anyone competing in the forthcoming cross country season or Tipperary Mini Marathon.  Participation has increased over the past two years and it would be great to see that trend continue on Sunday.  The club also hope to see other athletic clubs in the County giving us their support.  We encourage all club athletes, junior and senior, to take part and support the club.  Local support is also encouraged so if you can walk, jog or run we would love to see you on the day.  Sunday also sees Kevin Donovan run this 30th race of the year in his 32 County Challenge in aid of the Cork Deaf Association and the Irish Deaf Society.  This is Kevin’s chosen Tipperary Race. Show your support for Kevin by taking part with him on the day.  Everyone welcome.
