Any parents who are interested in coaching are invited to meet with current Coaches tonight (Oct 23rd) at 8.40pm at the track for a short, informal chat. As the Club is expanding, we need and welcome new people to come on board. No experience is necessary as new coaches are always paired with an experienced coach in order to learn the ropes. 
Every little helps, so even if you can only do one hour a week - it would be gratefully appreciated.

If you can't make tonight but would like to get involved, please call Sandra on 087-6368289 or speak to any coach at the track.

Three very impressive times and placing’s, with the Frankfurt and Dublin marathons just a fortnight away it shows the incredible commitment and hard work is showing great results.
