Javelins, Mountain Running to Feature Films – Weekly Round-Up

Thanks to everyone who co-operated with training and HSE requirements at training last week. Anyone who had not completed the Covid-19 survey can do so by following the link sent out via email. If anyone is not feeling well in any way or injured you should not come to training. The current requirements will remain in place until further notice. Hope to see some new faces at training this week and as usual, everyone is welcome.  If you have not signed up for 2021 membership, you can do so here.

Well done to James Curran as well as Eoghan, Michael and Volkan too on some great running at the IMRA race on Scarr on Wednesday. Former member and friend of the club Martin also came home in 3rd place overall which was fantastic.

Upcoming Club Virtual Challenges
