Places to train

Athletics tracks remain outside the 5km for most of us but we look forward to the building of the regional athletics hub in Newcastle west. The greenway from Rathkeale to Ardagh is now finished and it the perfect surface to run on along with being safe from traffic and The demesne in Newcastle west is great as it offers the cross country loop along with the path.
