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

  • Posted on: 20 December 2015

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.

A group of our young athletes in the 15-18 age group are hosting a Cake Sale on Sunday 20th December at the track in Dangan at 11am.  They are fundraising to reduce the costs of a training camp in Portugal which they are participating in early next year.  This is a fantastic opportunity for this talented group and we would ask you to support them in any way you can.  Donations of cakes/biscuits etc or a raffle prize would be much appreciated.

Battling the muck at the National X-Country Champs (uneven ages) in Dungarvin

[acidfree:11503 title=" " size=400 align=centre]Three of our U13s won bronze medals at the Nationals in Dungarvin today as members of the successful Connacht team.  Eimear Rowe had her best performance of her year to finish in a credible 18th position, she was followed in 19th by  Emma Moore, Shauna Brennan  finished 36th with all three making the podium for Connacht.  Ciara Dunne 80th, Sinead Duggan 138th and Joanna Healy 144th made up the GCH team that just narrowly missed the bronze by 4 places in the team event.  So heartbreakingly close for this team.
