Churchtown Roadrunners AC Club Notes Week Ending 4/3/2018

Races 

Unfortunately the inaugural Duhallow AC 10 miler due to be held last Sunday came up against the ‘Beast from the East’ and ‘Storm Emma’, it will be rescheduled with details to follow this week.  Catherine Hanlon plans to run the Queen Elizabeth Winter 10k were also dealt a blow when she was forced to cancel her trip.  Due to the road conditions our club decided to try out the Balllinaboola Loop near Ballyhea for our Sunday morning run, we had good fun and all returned with gleaming runners after their snow wash.   For those of you who enjoyed the trail running, Tom Blackburn is holding a trail/hill running clinic this Saturday, please refer to the Ballyhoura Active news if you are interested in registering.  This Sunday the MMRA are holding a 10k race at Ballinaboola, please note you must register on line with IMRA before the race.
 
Coming up on the race diary locally Baltydaniel NS are holding a 5k at Doneraile Park this Saturday, the County Road Championships are in Castlelyons on Monday 19th March and and the ever popular Mallow 10 is Sunday 25th March.
If there are any members who are hoping to target a specific race or time during the spring and summer please do not hesitate in asking our Club Captains or any of our more experienced members for help and guidance.
 
Easter
We are holding our Easter raffle again this year and we will be following the same format as last year with regard to club kits, Margie will have cards from this weekend.  We are introducing a club tshirt which can be used for racing and socially should you choose……..
