Blackrock A.C. Members Complete 617 x 8km Challenges

Blackrock A.C. members have complete 617 x 8km runs as part of a virtual weekly challenge managed by Fit4Life leader, Gerry Flaherty, during lockdown in 2021.

70 members of Blackrock A.C. completed a weekly 8km running challenge mostly within 5km of their homes. What started as a virtual challenge for the month of January continued until the end of May with many people making the effort to run an 8km each week and logging their time on the google form link. As the weeks progressed, many members looked forward to the challenge each week. This was during a time when people could not train with the club due to HSE Covid-19 restrictions.

In total, 617 x 8km were completed as part of the challenge over the 20 weeks with 4 people completing an 8km for each of the 20 weeks; Sarah Conroy, Aideen Sheehan, Celine Bennett and Ger O’Toole. We also had many people chasing their pbs each week with big pbs achieved by James Dowling, Imelda Callaghan, Sinead Howard and Dee O’Mahony. Many members ran very consistent times each week including Janel Gleich and Monica Keane. The following table outlines the list of members who completed the most 8kms each week.
