First Track Session of the Season Wednesday April 5th 7:00pm

Back to the track for the next few months, until the end of August.  The track in question is the UCC (Sonia O’Sullivan) Track at the University Sports Grounds on the Mardyke.  Note the change of time from our road runs, we have the track booked from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.  We will start with a set of 400s get people used to the track and help everyone establish a feel for their pace.  Over the last few years we have had all levels coming to these sessions, from some of our elite performers right through to beginners.  There is no problem accommodating all levels.  St Finbarr’s AC have the track for the hour before us, if you arrive a little early and are warming up on the track please respect their space.   Format for the sessions, easy warm-up jog, dynamic stretch main set. Warm up running the correct way round the track (anticlockwise).  For anyone interested Trevor Woods triathlon talk is on in the Western Gateway Building at 8:15pm, Western Gateway is only a couple of 100m away, easily reachable in time.   Also they have introduced new parking controls at the Mardyke Arena, if you are not an Arena member you may not be allowed take a car in, there is a limited amount of street parking around.  You could consider parking where we meet for the road running and jog over to the Mardyke?
