National Master’s Track and Field Championships in Tullamore
Bernadette Spillane was in action on Saturday at the National Master Championships in Tullamore. She was competing in the 200m and 400m where she was up against stiff competition. The weather was blustery which was difficult for sprinters but she ran so well finishing 6th in the 200m in a sub 30 clocking (29.83). Later in the evening she followed up with another super run to clench the Bronze in the 400m. This time running 1.07.75. Ber has had a wonderful year, where she competed at home and abroad, making many memories, medalling and running life time bests on the way! Her season now comes to a close, where rest is a priority before she commences the winter training block. 💚💛

Last Sunday 4 of our club members were involved with the Tipperary Women’s National League team. Team Manager Martin Flynn along with John Flynn collated a very strong panel of athletes to contest for the National League title that came to the decider in Tullamore. Katie Bergin and Sharon Cantwell were part of this team, unfortunately Sharon did not make the start line of the 2000m Steeplechase after sustaining a calf injury during the week but Katie once again delivered by winning the 200m in a swift time of 23.83 and followed up in the 100m in an equally swift 11.8 seconds to give the team the valuable 9points on the scoreboard. To her delight she has once again clocked two personal bests on a day where she had to also run strong legs in the 4x100m and 4x400m. An incredible result which caps off an incredible summer for her. The team standings were extremely close at the top with Tipperary there or there abouts. As the long day concluded, the team ended up settling for a credible second place just missing out to East Cork. Well done to all involved in the success of this team.
Training for all has returned this week, with Tuesdays and Friday’s being the core day for juveniles. 7:30pm start. We encourage all our athletes to get back to the track if they have not already done so and get the base in ahead of what will be a busy cross country season. As always we welcome new members from 7 years and over, but we especially would encourage older athletes come join our club. There will be a number of sessions on offer so please contact the club and speak to one of our coaches to find out more on various training groups.
