King of the Hill Marshals required

CTC King of the Hill is less than a month away, and to safely run the event we need 70 marshals. We currently have less than half that registered.

There are not many requirements to be a club member, but one thing that we do ask is to marshal at our races. If we do not get enough marshals to safely run the race we will have to cancel the event.

We are asking people to register as soon as possible, as we need to prepare the marshal plan, and send it out in advance of the race.

The budget for the race is not as big as a middle distance race, but we do our best to take care of the marshals. There will be a coffee & refreshments voucher provided for after the race, and there are plans for a drink voucher at a pub that night.

Do spread the work, bring your friends, many hands make light work.

CTC night out 22nd July: Deep South

Don’t forget: There is a night out this Saturday night July 22nd in The Deep South beer garden – South Mall from 8pm

It’s for both club members and KOTH marshals, so everyone is welcome.

For all their effort and encouragement on and before race day, there will be drink vouchers on the night for marshals – contact Eidin there. There will be some finger food provided.

See you all there.

Track Session Wednesday 19th July

A little bit different again this week with a session of 500s. The pace should be your 5km road race pace.  Should be easy enough to do the sums on this one.  As usual personal responsibility for people to balance their race recovery and race preparation.  The full session is 10 x 500m, anyone racing King of the Hill on Saturday should consider cutting this to 8 x.  Anyone not racing should consider marshalling if not already registered 🙂

Meet at the usual time of 7:00pm at the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke.

Easy warm up jog

Dynamic stretch

6 x Strides

10 x 500m with 300m easy recovery jog

Track Session Wednesday July 12th

A kilometer session this week, 4 x 1km, these should be run at your straight 5km pace (5km as a road race not the 5km at the end of a tri).  The eagle eyed may notice that the recovery is not quite as long as previous sessions.  Usual format for the session, easy warm up jog, dynamic stretch,strides and the main set.  Usual health warning with respect to racing, balance recovery if racing last weekend, especially for anyone who did the half in Waterville and don’t overdo it if racing next weekend.

Meet at the usual time, 7:00pm, at the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke.
