New Website

Grange Fermoy AC is in the process of setting up a website for the club, this will include the history of the club, photos, past and present glories, training routes and schedules, links to various clubs and events and maybe news and views from members!!!!! Grange Fermoy also has a facebook page and also a fermoy runners group was set up on facebook to let people know when training runs are on and hopefully help to encourage people to meet up with existing runners in the town.

Dungarvan '10'

That time of the year again when the John Buckley 10mile series is upon us, Dungarvan is up first and going by the training that is happening during the week, we should be expecting some fantastic times, not putting pressure on anyone!!!!!!!. So hopefully a good day by all and gr8 reports to be passed on.

Membership forms can be collected from Darren, Clo and Maurice in Colmans on tues and thurs nights or from Darren on sat mornings at the long run. Forms can also be e-mailed.

Training Update

Training has been updated on the side of the blog.

Saturday long runs

Hi lads and lassies, if your up early enough over the last few weeks you might have seen a highly visible group of dedicated (or to the non running public, lunatics) runners hitting the high road and heading out of the town. As part of the group I must say that it totally enjoyable to be running with such a large group (9-11 so far), considering this time last year if you got 5 out at the one time for a long run you were doing well. Hopefully the group will remain consistant or even grow, anyone is welcome to join in!!!

Long John Silver does it again!!!!

After receiving Gold at Munster Master Indoors in Shot, weight for distance & High jump and Bronze at 60m sprint, John Rice took Silver in High Jump and Long jump, Bronze in shot putt and came 4th in 60m at the All Ireland Indoors last Sunday. Congratulations John! Great stuff!

Munster Senior Cross Country

John Griffin was the only Grange athlete to take part in the 10k X country Munster Senior race last sunday in Beaufort. Finished 50th in 48.20. Well done John!

"Welcome Back"
