Indoor T&F Championships this Saturday, 6th January

The County Indoor Championships are on this Saturday at the indoor track in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. The meeting kicks off with a 3000m for Senior athletes as the first event on the program at 10.30am.

With all the wind and rain recently wouldn't it be nice to go for a run without getting hammered by gale force winds, driving rain and even falling trees ( I had to jump a couple during a workout today)?

Indoor running is a very different experience to what most of us are accustomed to, and I would encourage those of you who haven't previously done so to give it a go. The shorter distance is useful for putting a bit of zip into your training and racing at this time of year.

Back to Training 10th September

Galway City Harriers Juvenile training recommences on Sunday 10th September at the track in Dangan at 10.30am. The club welcomes athletes from 7 years of age to 18 years of age to the juvenile training sessions.

Over the last 10 years the number of juvenile athletes in the club has grown from 30 to approximately 200. The standard of athletes vary from the occasional trainer to national champions.

Anybody who might be interested in trying out the sport is welcome to try it out. The cost is €1.50 per session. Further details & contact numbers are available in the juvenile section.
