What a busy month January was for Tramore AC Seniors. The month started off with all our regulars getting back into training after the Christmas break and we were joined in the middle of the month with the people talking on the Ryan and Ethan Waterford Viking Challenge. Monday's and Wednesdays are now very busy with all the excited newcomers and members have been helping with the training and encouragement for the "Challengers". If you are prepared to take part in the challenge, remember to pick up an entry form and sponsorship card at training and hand your completed entry form and money to Tracy Dunne who will then enter you or your relay team in the Waterford Viking Marathon on behalf of the Ryan and Ethan challenge.
We had a huge number compete in the Dungarvan 10 at the end of the month with many personal best times and great performances by all who took part. We also had the best supporters who make any distance easier with their encouraging cheers. A great evening and night was had by many in Merry's in Dungarvan and the Vic in Tramore afterwards.
The road race season is well and truly underway now and these are a few races coming up in the next few weeks:
- Anne Valley 5 mile Challenge - Saturday 9th February 12 noon
- Enniscorthy 10k - Sunday 10th February 12 noon
- Run Mount Juliet, 3k, 0k and half Marathon - Saturday 16th February 11am
- Kilmacthomas 5 mile - Sunday 17th February 11am
- Duncannon 10k - Sunday 24th February 12 noon
- Dungarvan 10k - Sunday 24th February - time to be confirmed
Many of these races can be entered on RunIreland or on the day.
If any of our members have arranged to meet for a run Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays, please put details of these arrangements on the Tramore AC Facebook page if you are willing to have others join you. It is easier run in a group and as there are so many of us, there is no reason why anyone should run alone if they don't want to.
Finally, membership fees are now overdue - please bring your completed membership form and your fees to Monday or Wednesday training. Remember, you are not insured if you have not paid your membership fee.
