September Competitions

9th September 2019

The following competitions are coming up the next 3 Sunday’s:

  • 15th Taghmon Open Athletics, Wexford
  • 22nd St Senan’s Open, Kilmacow
  • 29th COUNTY **XC Relays, Thomastown

We realise Sunday’s are precious so we advise that athletes prioritise the *COUNTY race on the 29th and also go to an OPEN event in support of our neighbouring clubs.
Open Competition also has its value for athletes including:

  • A practise XC race
  • A test of fitness
  • To race against different clubs
  • Training
  • and ALSO developing social skills and becoming part of the Gowran AC team! #goGowran nothing like bonding in a random mucky field against the elements of nature. ? ? ❄️ ⛈
