With Covid-19 causing havoc with the cross-country season, the proposed new dates for November have now also gone by the board. We will keep members updated on the situation but until the Country is back to at least Level 2, the absence of any championships will still be very much on the cards.
The club will continue with training each Tuesday and Friday night at 7.30pm. Pods of 15 were already in place with all our athletes and coaches observing all the rules and regulations. While the Level 5 restrictions are in place, the club is not able to take on any further athletes. A reminder also, that the health questionnaire must also be completed prior to each session and again our thanks to the parents for continuing to observe this. Only individual training for seniors is permitted and we hope all members using the track observe this regulation and complete the health questionnaire prior to attending the facility. Now more than ever we need to be extra vigilant.
Virtual Dublin City Marathon
Congratulations to club member Brian Carroll who completed the virtual Dublin City Marathon on Sunday last in a time of 3.48.24. Joining him over the entire distance was David Russell whilst other club members ran various distances with him throughout the 26.2 miles, all the while observing social distancing. Brian certainly hit his target of a sub four-hour marathon.
Winners over the past two weeks were Jim O’Grady, Geraldine Hickey, Vera Cleere, Willie Moore, PJ Ryan, Eibhlis Purcell, Michelle Percy and Liam O’Reilly. Our thanks to everyone for their support.
