Congratulation to everyone in action this week, training or competing.
Our very own Frank Duffy 10 Mile will take place on Sat. 26th Aug, with entries closed. We need to provide stewards for the Frank Duffy 10 Mile on 26/8/2017 in the Phoenix Park and the Half Marathon on Saturday 23/9/2017. It is really important we provide enough people as a lot of our funding for the club is generated through these events. If anyone is free to give any time please contact Brid or Brian.
