Welcome back, hopefully you all had a good summer. It was great to see all our younger athletes back at training on Friday.
We are straight into the Dublin Cross Country events with Juvenile League 1 in Newbridge House, Donabate which Skerries AC are jointly hosting with Lusk and Lambay Sports ACs on Sunday 16th September, with races starting at 11am sharp.
The distances to be run are :

U10 (athlete turning 9 in 2018) 600m
U11 (athlete turning 10 in 2018) 800m

If your child is available to take part please let your coaches know by Wednesday 12th at the latest, as we need to allocate race numbers to each athlete and send it to the Dublin Board of Athletics.
This is a fantastic event on the Dublin Cross Country calendar and a great chance to show case what a super club we have. As with all events we need volunteers and are putting out a call for help on the day. Help is needed from 10am to 1pm (races start at 11am) and it will be primarily to help maintain the race course, ensure that the athletes follow the correct course and ensure that the track is kept clear of spectators.
If you feel that you can help us out on the day can you please let Ruth or Liz know and if you have a high visibility vest please bring it along on the day. We will have some for those that haven’t got one.
Best wishes to all our athletes as we start the Cross Coutry season.
