Please note due to the low number of entries, we are no longer holding the Pentathlon this Saturday. However, we are going to use the track booking from 11am to 2pm for a training session in preparation for the Indoor Championships. This is open to ALL athletes from Little Athletics (born 2011/2012) and up wards. There is a nominal charge of €2 per athlete payable on the day, no need to pre-register.
The first hour will be dedicated to Senior/Master Athletes and Liz McDonagh's sprint/hurdles group. Liz's group will meet outside the Arena at 10.30am for warmup. All other juvenile athletes (from Little Athletics to U18) will train from 12pm to 2pm (please be at the Arena at 11.45am to check-in). All athletes will get a training session in each of the jumps, track and throws events appropriate for their age. We will also have a relay session, which will give the coaches a chance to select teams.
Irishtown training - CANCELLED
Please note this Saturday's training for Irishtown is relocating to Abbotstown. All athletes are welcome and encouraged to attend Abbotstown.
Spikes and Runners.
Please ensure your runners and spikes are clean. Also if you're are wearing spikes, please ensure the spike inserts are 5mm in size. Coaches will check spikes and those with the incorrect size will have to wear runners.
Thank you to all the parents who agreed to volunteer for the Pentathlon. Please note we will require some assistance with hurdles, long jump etc.., and would appreciate if you could still make yourself available to help on the day.
