Carrick AC’s very popular Winter League, kindly sponsored by SuperValu, Carrick-on-Suir, commenced with a registration evening at Kildalton College, Piltown, this week.
As in previous years, there will be a one-off registration fee of €5 for each runner and thereafter the entry is just €3 every week.
This league is run over a very safe and well-lit 5-kilometre route within the college grounds. It affords seasoned runners, novices and complete beginners the ideal opportunity to meet and train at a time of year when it can be difficult to train consistently on the roads due to the shortened hours of daylight.
On Tuesday, October 8th, there will be a massed start and all runners will be timed over the route. Thereafter, a handicap system will be put in place where groups of runners will start the course at two-minute intervals. The league will continue every Tuesday with the first group commencing at 7pm sharp. The final run will take place on Tuesday, December 17th. Please remember that a reflective bib must be worn during any Winter League run. For further information please contact Alan (051-641826), Mark (086-1608165) or Catherine (086-8774531).
