Juveniles have the option of running 1km and adults have the option of 10km .Participating clubs are to nominate one member to coordinate the clubs results and send them to Kevinodonoghue@gmail.com. All runs are virtual and in line with government restrictions 
Best of luck to everyone participating over the month.

March Virtual Challenge report

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.

Juvenile Training Notice:

We are delighted to be planning for a return to club juvenile training.
Parents/Guardians please note that the Viber Juvenile group is being deleted. All current members are asked to use the new Whatsapp Juvenile group.

Good news:
