Club session on Tuesday 8 November – 12 x 400m or hill session in Donard Forest. Please remember to bring a head torch if you are joining Eamon McCrickard’s merry men in the wood! For those on the 400s please remember that hi-viz clothing is mandatory.
We have hired a set of recovery boots for a trial period with a view to purchasing. To help us decide if this is viable and worthwhile we would invite club members to try them before a decision is made. We are charging a nominal fee of £10 for a 30-45 minute session to cover the hire costs. Please contact Joe McCann or Paul Byrne to arrange a session.
Planning ahead for racing and training
|Tuesday Session||Thursday Tempo
6:30 Donard Park
|10m Road||1 June Millstone
The Monday run on 20 June will leave from Donard Park in Newcastle at 6:15pm. The run will be in two parts – firstly a trot around Donard Forest (3 miles). Transition will be 1 mile down the Shimna Road to Bryansford GAC for the second part of the run – a 5k around the town following the course of the Ford 5 which takes place on 9 July. No doubt lots of Bryansford members will join us as they prepare for their big event.
We are having a club Parkrun outing to Comber on Saturday 16 July 2016. Parkruns are free and you simply need to register online at parkrun.org.uk and print off your barcode. You must present a barcode or you will not get a time. Parkruns are free timed 5k events which start at 21 different locations throughout NI every Saturday morning at 9:30am. They are timed runs as opposed to races, so it is you against yourself and the clock. Yesterday 40+ Orangegrove AC runners turned up at Falls Park and it looked spectacular. This is also an event where our junior members could come along and participate with senior members. As a general rule those of us who are regular Parkrun participants do not wear our club vests, but on this occasion I would ask everyone going to run in club colours. We will also take a club photograph at the beginning of the run. So, plan ahead and make this event part of your summer training plan. Any questions please email me – firstname.lastname@example.org
