Welcome back Track Attack


The cobwebs can be brushed off the runners as the new Track-Attack season is nearly upon us. Monday 24th of September is the big kick-off as athletes of all standards from the complete beginners to the more experienced gather at the track in Borrisoleigh to participate in what should prove to be a fantastic fun filled event.


Participants will be able to choose from 3 different distances namely 3km, 4km and 6km. Warm up will start at 7:40pm with the start whistle then echoing at 8pm. What’s unique about the Track-Attack system is that regardless of your standard, you will have an equal chance of being successful in the fun leagues that we run as everything is gauged on improvement levels instead the level of speed that one can do.


On Monday night next (17th), we will have a pre-registration night in the GAA pavilion from 8pm to 9pm. We would ask everyone to come and register on the night as it will ease the workload on our organising volunteers on the opening night.


To participate, you must become a member of Track-Attack. The membership fee is €10 for adults and €5 for Under 18’s (those who have already paid their membership this year do not have to pay again until January 1st). The series fee is €20 for adults with no fee for Under 18’s. This will cover you for the 11 nights of the series.

Track-Attack welcomes all comers so drag yourself to the track and kick-start your new fitness regime in a friendly and fun environment. Check us out on our Facebook page at Borrisoleigh Track Attack.
