National Masters Track & Field C'Ships
The Annual Irish life National Masters Track & Field Championships were held in Morton Stadium on Sunday 6th September. Later than usual, due to Covid-19. Due to restrictions each athlete was only allowed to enter in one event. However, this did not have a large impact on the numbers competing. Their was a larger than normal increase in the men's distance races.
Arthur Fitzgerald was our only club member competing this year. It is Arthurs very first time competing as a master at the track and field events. Competing in the 1500m M35 race, which was, as usual, very competitive at National level. Arthur ran very well to finish 8th overall and in a time of 4:28. Arthur has been a member of the club from Juvenile level and has achieved great records throughout his athletics career. We hope he has many more at the Masters level.
We had a good turnout to our first group session since March. It was very enjoyable running in Inch beach. Thanks to all our helpers who helped out in both our Juvenile and Senior groups. Hope to be back again soon. Next planned session will be posted in WhatsApp group.
