Just a word of warning to anyone going out in the early morning for a run. Watch out for invisible ice patches on the foot paths . Running shoes don’t seem to cope very well with ice. Be careful, the last thing you need is a trip to Accident and emergency in the current situation.
Just a note to confirm that all club / group training has been cancelled due to the growing Covid infection rates in the community.
Our advice is to continue going out for runs and basically doing something similar to what we do at training. You can buddy up with ONE person from another family if you like and you must keep distanced. As schools are closed for all next week it should be possible for most athletes to get out in daylight.
Do not go out if you or anyone in your family has symptoms. If you are a close contact you must also isolate. Follow the guidelines from the HSE and this lockdown will hopefully be successful in bringing numbers down sufficiently to allow us back to group training.
Coaches will be in direct contact with the sprints group and the older middle distance group shortly. We are also looking at zoom indoor sessions as well. Details next week.
Keep safe everyone. We got through the last lockdown and we will get through this one as well. Happy and safe new year to you all.
It has been a challenging year all around but a massive thank you and well done to each of our members, volunteers and helpers who have helped us to keep the Celtic DCH fire burning throughout 2020 – here’s hoping there will be more competitions in the near future where we can celebrate the hard work and dedication each of our athletes have put in this year! 🎉
Wishing a safe and happy Christmas to all our members, coaches and volunteers! Stay safe and enjoy a well deserved rest 🎄
