St. Stephen's Day brought the, by now traditional, Fields of Athenry, flooded roads, chilly conditions and gale force winds.  Actually there was no gale force wind and it showed in some superb performances.  Matt Bidwell led the GCH challenge home with a fantastic sub 32 minute run and a 3rd place overall finish.  Martin Kearney not only secured his first top 50 t-shirt but also ran a 10km PB for good measure.  Niall Murphy also ran his best Fields yet to secure one of those sought after t-shirts.  Club stalwart Seamus Coyne had, literally, the 10km run of his life to also run a PB.

Ultra Runner Cole Greene will don the GCH vest this Saturday 2nd Jan at 12 O'Clock and attempt a gruesome 50K on a TREADMILL in the sweltering conditions of the busy Eyre Square Centre as a fundraiser for GCH Juvenile.  He will set up opposite Penneys.

We'll have a second treadmill available for any athletes who wish to run alongside Cole on his epic journey.

Please come out and support his attempt, it's an awesome challenge.

2016 Membership and Track Fee Update

Over the past several months the GCH Development Committee and Juvenile Committee have been reviewing how we collect and manage membership and participation fees at GCH. At the moment all our track fees and most of our membership fees are in cash. The club is of a scale where this requires heroic effort on the part of a few volunteers to collect, count and lodge. Finding €2 for track every time can be pretty inconvenient for participants too. So in 2016 we're moving to a new membership and fees arrangement across all membership groups.
