Club Notes 03/09/2019


Dingle Marathon
The Dingle Marathon and Half Marathon was the big race of the weekend gone by with hundreds of runners descending on the County Kerry town. Richard Lenihan and Mary Folan Ryan both had great runs on the day on what is one of the tougher routes on the race circuit. Well done to both.
An Ríocht 5K
The An Ríocht 5K series kicked off on Friday night in Castleisland. Noelle Leahy had a very good run finishing in just over 25 minutes. The first of our couch to 5K runners was also in action with Marie O Donnell having no trouble completing the 5k distance. Well done to both Noelle and Marie.
Newcastle West Couch To 5K
All roads lead to Castleisland on this coming Friday where our couch to 5k group will participate in the local 5km series hosted by An Ríocht AC. The training is done and the fruits of the last 12 weeks will no doubt be evident on the night. We wish all our couch to 5K group the very best of luck and hope that everyone will keep up the running and continue to train with the club into the future.

The cross country season is approaching quickly and this year West Limerick AC will be hosting the Senior, intermediate and uneven ages on a date and time to be confirmed. Bilboa AC will be hosting the novice, masters and even ages on Sunday October 14th. Only registered club members can participate in these championship events.
