There is discus competition starting at 11am with the rest of the events starting at 12pm. An open day is a fundraiser for a club so athletes pay €3 to enter the events (one payment to enter all events). Directions can be found on the tab on the left, it is about 40 min drive to Crookstown. There will be a poster with the events put up on our facebook page.  Crookstown Open day

It was a busy weekend with all sections of the club involved in competition, first mention must go to the Senior men and women who took part in the Kildare Senior Road Championship which was held in Leixlip. The men ran a 10K route and our Chairperson Barry Murphy lead the Kildare men around the course and had a kick at the end to take the individual County title with David O'Connor finishing in the Silver medal position, they were followed home by Martin Hoare in 5th place and James Hoare in 8th place to secure the Senior County Road title for Celbridge Athletic Club. We had 16 men from the club take part in the race which was the biggest number from any of the Kildare clubs. In the women's race which was run over 4k we only had one competitor Katie O'Connor ran a great race to finish in a time of 16.22 and finished in 6th place. We need our ladies to put this race in the calendar for next year.

In the National Juvenile Indoor Championships which was held in Athlone George Lowen took the National Gold in the under 15 800m race in a time of 2:10:55, it is great to see a Celbridge AC athlete competing in a middle distance competition at this level with such success, well done George. Ikenna Ezeugo took a Silver medal in the under 19 long jump with a jump of 6.59. Michelle O'Dea competing under 19 was just outside the medals in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump finishing in 4th place. We must also give a mention to Susan Nestor who was competing for her home club St Mary's Clare in the under 13 60m Hurdles, Susan finished in 6th place in a time of 10.33. The National indoor Championships is the highest level of athletics for juvenile and it is great for any athlete to have made it to this level, well done to all.

In the Dunboyne 4 mile Road Race Cian May finished 3rd in the Junior men's section in a time of 22.42. We also had a Master athlete competing in the European Indoor Masters Finola Moore travelled to Poland to compete for Ireland in the Pentathlon and finished with 2461 points. There was a photo finish in one of the competitions when a male aged 104 from Poland crossed the line at the same time as a 95 year old English man.

Our next juvenile competition takes place on Sunday 12th with the Crookstown Open Day starting at 12md. The Open Day is a fundraiser for the club and we always encourage athletes to compete in the Open day, it is a great way to get experience before the summer Championships. We are back in Crookstown the following Sunday 19th for the second round of the Kildare Juvenile League. We are presently in 2nd place in the League so we need as many athletes as possible to make sure we maintain our position. If parents are not available to travel try asking another parent or talk to a coach.

Our masters were in action in Athlone on Sunday with the National Master Indoor Championships, we were down a few of our reliable masters with injury and mother’s day however as always the athletes who travelled did not disappoint with Damien Kirwin and Paula Reilly taking Silver in the 60m. We are awaiting confirmation however it is believed that they also took Silver in the 200m. Finola Moore took Gold in the High jump and long jump and Shot Putt with a PB throw of 7.24m, Finola is travelling to Poland next Sunday to take part in the European Masters Indoor Championship so best of luck Finola.


Our juvenile athletes travelled to Naas to take part in the first round of the Kildare League, the League is always a good way for young athletes to experience competition and gauge how early season training is going, disappointingly we had small numbers out to compete so we will have to wait for results to see how the first round went. The next competition for juvenile athletes is the Crookstown Open day which is on 12th April, with the second round of the League taking place on 19th April, also in Crookstown.

The first round of the Kildare League for juvenile athletes will take place in Naas this coming Sunday 15th March with a 2pm start. The Kildare League if for athletes up to and including under 16. Each athlete will take part in two events on the day and points are awarded to every athlete who competes. There will be four league dates and the total points from the four dates will determine where each club finishes. Celbridge AC finished in 3rd place last year and we hope to try equal or do a bit better on the 2014 position. It is important that we get as many athletes out from every age group to make a good start in 2015. The League usually only takes two hours to complete so it will not be a long day. If parents are unable to bring young athletes try make contact with coaches at training on Thursday and lifts may be organised. We need athletes to be at the venue for 1pm to get warmed up.

This weekend is a big weekend for Juvenile athletes in the club on both Saturday and Sunday the Leinster Indoor Juvenile Championships will take place in Athlone Arena. Athletes are asked to check the Athletics Leinster Facebook page or web site for timetable of events however you should be aware that events can start a little earlier than listed so get to the venue in plenty of time to warm up and prepare for the competition. We are lucky enough to have some experienced older athletes competing and younger athletes are always encouraged to talk to the older athletes they are always willing to give advice at the venue. We will also have a number of club coaches at the venue but some may be required to help with the organising of the competition, the people who help with the organising and running of the event are volunteers so we ask that you show them respect. Celbridge Athletic Club have a tradition of doing well at Leinster Competitions and are considered one of the big clubs, we encourage younger athletes to enjoy competition and develop their ability, winning medals is not a priority at a young age having fun and staying competing is much more important....so lets all go down and compete to the best of our ability and enjoy the weekend.
