Weekly Roundup November 21st

It’s Sunday so that means it’s time for the Weekly SBIM Roundup! There were plenty of members out in force over the weekend representing the club at various events.
At Avondale parkrun we had a ladies lineup with Geraldine (31:44), Zydrune (31:45), Esme (32:03) and Caoimhe (33:25) completing the course. Well done ladies!
Carmel travelled to take on the Waterford Nature parkrun in (26:32) while Gareth was on the volunteer roster down at Gorey parkrun.
In Glencullen it was time to put the training into action for five of our memebers who took part in the Run The Line event. Susan took on the 13km route completing in (2:01) while Michael (3:01), Tiernan (3:24), Jacqueline (3:37) & Aoife (3:37) finished the 26km course. Unfortunately an injury ruled Justin out on the day but he was more than happy to take on the photographer & cheerleader role! Well done to all on what was a very tough, hilly challenge. The training certainly paid off!
Also on Saturday and not far from Glencullen, Slawek and Kevin competed in the Dublin Mountain Trail Running Festival. It was an early 6am start in darkness for Kevin in the 50km race which consisted of 2 x 25km loops on a very muddy, hilly course finishing in (7:42). Slawek started at 7am in the 25km race finishing the loop in (3:19). Well done to both lads on a tough days work!
In a new addition to our roundup, well done to two of our newest members Conor & Clara who competed in the Canicross 5km event in Dartrey. Canicross consists of cross country running with your dog using a special harness. Well done to Clara who claimed a top 5 spot in the race with Conor taking 1st place! Also well done to their four legged running partners Ralph & Grouse. We’re looking forward to seeing more of these events and perhaps get some other members involved!
Sunday morning is Juvenile parkrun which saw 15 of our Juvenile members complete the course. Well done to Aaron, Adam, Baileigh, Beibhinn, Eimear, Hanna, Hannah, Harper, Kate, Libby, Madison, Mollie, Saoirse, Tommy & Tristan. Well done everyone!
As always a big thanks to our essential volunteer roster this week of Aoife, Alison, Donna, Geraldine, Gillian, Justin, Layla, Michael, Susan, Slawek & Zydrune. This great free event relies on new volunteers to keep it going so please do get in touch if you would like to offer to join in the fun!
Juvenile training continues as usual. Adult training resumes back at the Running Track on Tuesday at 7pm. Get in touch if you would like to know more about our adult group!
