CTC AGM Nov 8th

The club AGM will be held at the Rochestown Park Hotel, on Thursday  evening November 8th at 8pm.  The club committee is very eager to get as many members as possible to attend and so will be operating a similar system to last year which was very well attended:

  • 1: We will be holding a core session from 7:30pm with a qualified instructor
  • 2: There will be no nominations for club committee roles on the night. Yes you read is correctly you cannot be given a job on the night unless you have offered to take up that role in advance of the meeting.

 

A full list of the committee position with description is included in the attached link. If you are interested in taking up one of the positions please e-mail admin@corktri.com . The club is a completely volunteer run club with no paid positions.  The membership of the club over past few years has been at about 200 members.  If you have not been involved in any committee role please consider taking on something, there are a number of roles which are not at all onerous and don’t place too many time demands.  Everyone involved is also an active athlete.   The main committee only meets once per month.

The AGM will include reviewing the past year and planning for the coming year and electing officers to the committee where persons have been nominated in advance.

As part of planning for the new year please advise by e-mail to admin@corktri.com any proposals/resolution you wish to have discussed/voted upon at the meeting.

Wednesday Run; Start of Autumn/Winter Tempo Sessions

Start of the winter tempos sessions.  Meeting at the earlier time of 6:30pm at the car park on the city side of the Straight Road.  COme ready to run.  It is about 2.5km to the Business and Technology Park on the Model Farm Road.  For any who can’t make it to the Straight Road go directly to the first roundabout inside the entrance to the Business Park for about 6:50/55pm.  Careful with the parking in the business park as they do clamp.  There is a visitors car park about half way down the road on the left hand side, safe enough to park there.  Wear Hi-Viz or some kind of light, all black Skins may look great (on some) but don’t make you very visible to traffic.  The route we run in the park can be seen here. We can start with a relatively benigh session and work up.

Session

Easy jog to Technology Park

6 x 60m strides

2 x 4 minutes tempo with 2 min recovery

4 x 2 minutes with 1 minute recovery

Easy jog back to the Straight Road

Two lumpy routes proposed for this week, heading in a southerly direction.

This offers great value, particularly to new members, as this membership would be valid until December 2019, and to existing members, there is now no excuse to be rushing to join the night before Joey Hannan in April.
