It’s an amazing autumn on and off the road

Congratulations to all who completed Irish Life Dublin City Marathon last Sunday. Great to be back after pandemic halted proceedings over the previous 2 years. Full championship results will be available on Athletics Ireland website over the coming days once checked & verified. Please see www.athleticsireland.ie for updates.

We are also delighted to announce that Anne Gilshinan F55, Slaney Olympic has been selected as Master Athlete of the year & will be presented with her award at AAI Gala Awards on Wed 23rdNov. It’s been a phenomenal year for Master Athletics, with many fantastic achievements by Irish Athletes competing at European Indoors in Braga, World Outdoor Champs in Tampere & non stadia in Grossseto. Anne won a total of 5 gold medals over both indoor & outdoor champs & currently holds 6 World records. We are fortunate to have such an exceptional athlete competing at present and this award is richly deserved.

All selected athletes have been notified, so please confirm that you are available plus will also need to know if attending gala function that night. For those booked into the Clayton Hotel, race nos will be handed out on Friday night from 7.30pm at team meeting. Nos will be also distributed on Sat morning in Santry Demense from 10am.
