Weekly Roundup October 2nd

Kicking off the weekend, the Saturday crew enjoyed some morning miles followed by some coffee chats! Gareth clocked up more air miles while flying the SBIM flag adding two more parkruns to his 100 milestone achieved last week. On Saturday he took on the Szczecin parkrun in Poland (38:25) followed by a Monday parkrun at Hasenheide in Germany (32:52). Well done Gareth!

Also on Saturday, Donna (59:57) and Gillian (55:54) completed the Galway Bay 10k with Michael finishing the Half Marathon in (1:35). Well done everyone!

There was no Junior parkrun on Sunday as attention switched to Day 1 of the Wicklow Cross County Championships. A total of 20 Juveniles took on the tough Avondale Forest course in what was for some their first event. Everyone represented the club with pride and gave 100% in front of a large crowd of parents and coaches. We were delighted to have our U8 Girls Team win Gold along with the U10 Girls Team taking bronze.

Well done to – Abbie, Aoife, Beibhinn, Beth, Cara, Chloe, Ciara, Ethan H, Ethan F, Harper, Klaudia, Kornelia, Layla, Libby, Maebh, Millie, Mollie, Ruairi, Saoirse & Tommy. It was fantastic to see all the hard work and effort that is put into training each week showing along with lots of smiling faces. Day 2 will take place next Sunday, October 9th in Roundwood.

Juvenile training continues on Monday and Wednesday at 7pm at Church View. Adult training continues on Tuesday at 7pm at the running track. If you are interested in joining us then drop us a message and let’s have a chat!
