We are always on the lookout for more people to join our Field Development, Fundraising and Race Committee’s - if anyone is willing to help in any capacity, please don’t hesitate to contact us through social media or contact any of the committee members.
The past two years have been very difficult for the club due in the main to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen membership levels drop, training income fall and fundraising limited. The club will place an emphasis on having the gates open more for sessions throughout 2022 and welcome new members of all abilities to join us. We look forward to a year of hope and racing in 2022, be it cross-country, track and field or road running and we look forward to seeing the hooped green and white singlets out in force over the coming months 🏃♂️🏃♀️
