Burma Club Challenge
The Burma Club challenge will take place again this year. This popular series will start on the 25th of April and will take place for the 5 Wednesdays following. This is a great event to take part in and is those of all fitness levels. Interested parties should contact a committee member or sign-up at a training session during the upcoming weeks.
Moyne AC Track and Field League
This year the club will hold a Track and Field League over four dates. These dates are set for Thursday 19th of April, 5th of May, 26th of May and the 23rd of June (All Saturdays). The league will start at 7:30 pm for round 1 and 10am for round 2, 3 and 4.
The league is based on teams of 5, with four scoring members each night. All athletes who are interested in taking part must be over 14. We ask that athletes can commit to at least two of the events if they are interested in taking part. Athletes should submit two events that they would be interested in competing in and a program for each night will be announced in the upcoming weeks. A relay will take place each night after individual events.
The Annual Moyne AC Mini-Marathon will take place this year on Monday, the 4th of June. There will both a 5k walk and 10k road race. This is a popular event and this year is slightly different to most years as the event will not take place the same day as the Women’s Mini-Marathon in Dublin. Volunteers will be required for the smooth running of the event so we ask those available to help out to come down on the day.
