King of the Hill Marshals Required

Your Club Needs YouTo run our two club races, ‘King of the Hill’ (25th July) and The Lost Sheep (5th September) we need to have adequate numbers of marshals.

It is requested that club members should marshal at one race if they are competing at the other. Every year one of the main challenges of putting on these races is recruiting sufficient numbers of marshals.  If we do not have an adequate number in advance of the race we will have no option but to cancel the event.  We are asking people to register for the ‘King of the Hill’ as soon as possible in order to assist with planning.  Lunch will be provided for marshals during the day and dinner will be provided after the event.  Invite your family and friends to register!

No race can take place without volunteers.  They are every bit as important as the competitors and, on the day, no one contributes more to the atmosphere of the race.

Track Session Wednesday July 1st

AthleticsUCCTrackThis week’s session is 400s again.  This time divided into 2 sets of 5 with 400m easy between the 2 sets.  As usual people need to balance recovery with race preparation.  400s are not too onerous so for those racing next weekend and want to stay fresh best thing is to reduce the number of reps.  Meet at the usual time of 7:00pm at the UCC Track on the Mardyke

Aquathon Number 2, Dock Beach Kinsale 7:30pm Thursday 25th June

Aq_June19_startThe second aquathon of the summer series with be held this coming Thursday at 7:30pm from the Dock Beach in Kinsale.  It is unlikely that we will have kayak support this week so anyone competing needs to be sure that they are up to what is usually a 750m swim.  Juniors are welcome to compete in the aquathons but parents need to confirm that swim ability is adequate for the distance.  Anyone not competing but who would like to go down and give Tadhg and Shaughz a hand with the organising, name taking and time keeping would be very welcome.  Format this week will probably be the same as the last time with a 2 lap swim and a 2 lap run.

Track Session Wednesday June 24th (As usual Juniors Welcome)

Run_HBNo updated session on the DTT programme for this week.  With a good number of people heading to Kilkee for Hell of the West, a straight forward session of 10 x 400m is proposed.  As usual it is up to individuals to decide what suits their race preparation and can manage the number of reps and pace themselves. For those looking for a shorter session 10 x 300m would suit.
