Busy Week Ahead
It’s a busy week ahead on the local road-running scene and it all kick-starts next Sunday morning in nearby Killea when their annual festival of running starts at 12:30pm. In what is a brilliant promotion of running, there is a distance available to all who have any interest in competing.
On the day, athletes can choose from one of 3 distances namely 5km, 10km and 10 miles. We would encourage all our Track-Attackers to stick on a club shirt and head to compete.
On the following Friday (Good Friday), it’s destination Loughmore for the annual John Kelly road race. This event has a 6pm start with entries taken from 5:30pm onwards. Again we would encourage all Track-Attackers to make the short journey and lend your support to the local events.
Track-Attackers on Tour
After 2 hugely successful Series on the Track over the winter months, Track-Attack intend to hit the roads on Monday nights over the coming weeks as we visit some of the areas where non Borrisoleigh Track-Attackers hail from.
On May 8th, we head to Templederry which is the home parish for many Track-Attackers. On May 15th we are heading to Drom while the following week (22nd), we will be heading to Latteragh Wood. Gortagarry will be the next stop-over on May 29th. On June 12th, its destination Templemore followed by a trip to Kilcommon on June 19th while the final stop-off is in Fantane on July 3rd.
