Little Athletics will move outdoors from Conna Hall to Conna Pitch starting Monday 26th March, 7pm to 8pm.
Juvenile training has now moved outdoors to the Conna Pitch on Monday and Thursday evenings, 7pm to 8pm. Monday training sessions will be split into two halves allowing each athlete to try two different events. Thursdays will be used for more concentrated training where each athlete will be asked to choose just one event from those taking place that evening. We hope that those who wish to take part in competitions this year will use Thursdays to increase their fitness and skill in their chosen events.

We hope you all have a Happy Christmas and return to us in the New Year ready for a new season of athletics!
Congratulations to Laura Hayes who recently represented Cork in the National Juvenile Cross Country championships in Sligo. Laura was the third person home in the her team which enabled them to achieve team silver. Laura has consistently trained hard and raced well this season and deserves her medal, the first National medal for the club, either in recent years or in the previous form of the club.
In the same weekend as Laura won her medal, her father Frank, our coach and chairman, represented Ireland in the British and Irish Masters Cross Country championships in Scotland. Frank’s tremendous form in recent races continued at this event where his position contributed to the Irish Men’s Over 40s team winning bronze medal. The Hayes family “broke” all kinds of records that weekend.
