Buttevant RC Notes
This is the first post from Buttevant RC. We are delighted to be part of the Ballyhoura Active Series for our very first race and wish to thank you for all your support and guidance so far. Work is well underway planning our race which is to be held on Friday, 18th May.
Brief background to the club.
Our chairman & his now wife were looking for people to run with locally and so after some advertising, the 1st group met in Nov 2015. Enthusiasm to start our own club became evident very quickly and so the club was officially registered with AAI in 2016. The club is continuing to grow and we are proud to have 40+ members.
The club trains 3 times a week. On Tuesday and Thursday we meet 7.15pm @ the CoOp in Buttevant. On Sunday’s we meet at 10am @ the CoOp for distance runs unless otherwise advised on the clubs WhatsApp group or Facebook.
New members are always welcome. Hi-Viz clothing is mandatory. We maybe contacted through our Facebook page.
Last Sunday 8 of our club members took part in the race and did our club proud on the day. Well done to Garry, Paul, Jack, Susan, Joanne, Karen, Ed & Ciara. Congratulations to Garry on his PB. Delighted to see Ed back running. Ed ran a great race for his first race back after being out over 12 months due to injury.
Focus now is on the following upcoming races –
- Doneraile Park 5K Series- #2
- Adare 10k, 25th Feb.Starts @ 1pm
At the start of each month, we do a roundup of what happened the previous month. In January we started back after the Christmas break with great enthusiasm. The attendance levels have been high throughout the month despite the sometimes less than ideal weather conditions; wind, rain, snow, ice & cold have not stopped us. Well done everyone.
