Jingle Bells 5k Results

Well done to everyone who took part in the Jingle Bells 5k on Saturday – PBs and tired legs all round!!

It was the first road race and possibly the longest race many of our athletes (the sprints group!) have ever competed in and it was great to have everyone come out to give it a go and enjoy the run!

Results can be found here: https://www.popupraces.ie/race/jingle-bells-5k-2018/

Be sure to take note of your time, we will be aiming to beat it next year! 🎅🏼

From next week we will be going to the National indoor arena. Night and times will vary according to availability of the track. Please make sure to check website. Due to the limitation of track space and the intensity of the training we do there, these sessions are only suitable for athletes who train and compete regularly with the club. We will be sharing the track with other clubs each night and it’s important that all our athletes follow our coaches instructions on the night to avoid any incidents or accidents.

Info for those taking part in Jingle Bells 5k

We be leaving the Hole in the Wall at 10:15am SHARP on Saturday morning, so please be sure to arrive earlier than you usually would for Saturday training.

We will distribute race numbers and jog to the race start (at the 15 acres/the half way point on the jog over to Mary’s Hospital) as our warm up.  If you are not at the Hole in the Wall on time, we will be jogging over without you 😛

We will leave our gear with Brian at the start of the race (Just jumper/jacket/tracksuit bottoms etc  – no bags please as he will not be able to carry them all to the finish! 😉 )

You can wear your club singlet or club t-shirt if you have one, but if you are more comfortable wearing something else, go ahead. Dress for the weather (be sensible) & make sure to bring something warm to wear afterwards.

The race starts at 11am sharp and should take you roughly 30-35mins (that is, if you run/jog/not walk it ha!). The race will finish at the Mary’s Hospital steps so we will meet Brian there afterwards and jog/walk back to the Hole in the Wall as usual.

If you are being collected just warn who ever is collecting you that you will be back a bit later than usual (approx 12ish).
