March Virtual Challenge:
During the month of March we ran a virtual 4 mile challenge with other clubs in Limerick. Members of clubs in Limerick had the option to submit a race time for the 4 mile distance, juveniles could submit a 1km time. The idea behind it was to give an incentive to club members to start training or continue training during lockdown.
Garvan and Eavan Lyons of West Limerick A.C. recorded times of 3:36 and 3:39 respectively.
There was a good response to the 4 mile challenge from a number of clubs. Kevin O’Grady of Dooneen A.C. was the fastest over the month with a time of 20:53. The first woman was Helen Meehan of Bilboa A.C. in a time of 26:49.
We had introduced a club element with 6 members to score. The first men’s team was West Limerick A.C. while the first women’s team was Dooneen A.C.
We have now moved on to a 10k virtual challenge in April which again is open to members of all athletics clubs in Limerick.
The final leaderboard is here:
