National Masters Track & Field Championships

The club had one representative in the National Masters Track & Field Championships held in Santry on Sunday with Ber Spillane giving it her all in the W40 category.  Ber competed in the 200mts and 400mts and just missed out on winning a national medal placing fourth place in both events, only a couple of hundreds of a second away from bronze in the 200mts.   Well done Ber on your excellent performances.


Training has resumed for all our juvenile members from 8 years of age and upwards for the forthcoming cross-country season and it was great to see the large numbers in attendance.  With only a couple of weeks to the first race we encourage all athletes to attend the various sessions on offer.  The season for our senior athletes also gets underway in a couple of weeks and again we encourage everyone to step up on their training and what better encouragement than to meet up in a group and plan for the season ahead.
