I am going to begin with a reminder about letting us know whether you want to be considered for one of our teams for the Wicklow Way Relays. Our teams need to be declared in a few weeks time so we really need to know who is interested.
On the racing front we had a couple of 5k’s and a couple of half marathons run over the weekend. At the Portlaoise 5k Rory O’Connor continued his recent fine form with an excellent 4th place finish in a new PB of 14.49.
