Irish Life Health National Juvenile Indoor Champs Day 1 Rescheduled
Due to forecasted weather events over the next few days, the final day of the Athletics Leinster Juvenile Championships scheduled for the AIT Arena this Saturday has been postponed.
GCH athletes enjoyed a very successful weekend at the Connacht Indoor Championships in Athlone IT. There were some exciting performances in the relay competition where ten of our relay teams successfully qualified for the upcoming National Championships on 11th March. The top four athletes in each event qualify for the National Championships next month except for the middle distance races and relays where only the top three places go through.
There will be no juvenile training in Dangan on Sunday 25th February due to the Connacht Indoor Championships which are being held in Athlone IT.
Best of luck to all our athletes and coaches.
Training will continue as normal on Friday night at 7pm.

Please Note: There are 2 GAA matches in Pearse Stadium this Sunday 11th February- one at 12pm and one at 2pm, so anyone heading to Clarinbridge to the Cross Country from that direction, please leave Galway City early to get out to Clarinbridge !
