Our Juvenile Club are soon heading off on a 5 day intensive training camp in Monte Gordo, Portugal with 25 of their athletes on the 28th March. The athletes are all in the 16 to 18 age group.
GCH member Sean Breathnach has been a superb throwing athlete for many years. He continues to deliver outstanding throws and was recognised earlier this month by Galway Athletics as Senior Athlete of the Year.
The final Indoor Session for the U7-11 year olds will take place in the Pavillion this Friday 18th March at 7PM. Training for 9 year olds and older will resume outdoors on Fridays at 7pm after the Easter break on 8th April. Training for all ages from 7years old will continue on Sunday Mornings at 10.30am except for Easter Sunday 27th March. There will be no training on Good Friday 25th March or Easter Sunday 27th March as the Track and Pavillion are both closed. Hope you all enjoy the Easter Break.
The AAI National 10k is on Sunday 10th April in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. GCH athletes performed extremely well last year (report here), with three teams winning silver medals and several gold medal winners. We hope repeat and improved performances for this year.
Please email Mags Sheridan, club secretary, before Thursday 31st March if you intend to compete this year: email@example.com
A massive congrats to all who took part in the Kinvarra Rock and Road Half Marathon and 10k Races earlier this month.
GCH were dominant in the field and even more dominant on the podium despite windy conditions on the undulating course.
Must be all that winter training paying off!!!
In the Men’s 10k Race, the 2016 is looking good already for Owen Byrne who came 2nd in 35.05.
In the Women’s 10k Race Siobhan Egan is looking fresh after her Cross Country team win taking 2nd place also in 39.38.
A Fit4Life group will be travelling to the New Inn 5K on Sunday 3rd of April. All welcome to run, walk or jog it, or a combination of all three!
A bus will leave Westside Library at 11am (race start time 1pm) and return at approximately 4pm after race and post-race refreshments.
Please contact Bernie Kelly to book a place on the bus - €25 for bus and race entry.

Best of luck to all our athletes competing in the National Indoor Championships on Sunday 13th March in AIT.
Training is cancelled as many of our coaches will be attending this event to support our club athletes.
It’s here again, Spring!!! And that means the 5K Series is almost upon us.
Time to see if all those rainy, windy, cold nights and days out on road over the winter were worth it!!
