Good Turnout at Training on Wed and Fri

There was a very good number of athletes back in training on Wednesday and Friday last but there are still a few more who have not made it back yet we look forward to seeing them in action this week as the county championships are only a couple of weeks away.

Adamstown Cross Country on Sunday 11th Sept

The cross country seasons opens next Sunday when Adamstown will host an open cross country. This is a very good event to start with as the distances are shorter than the championship distances and we also compete against clubs from Leinster that we seldom have a chance to run against. We hope for a big turnout on Sunday. Check the notice board at training for details.
