Carrick A.C. Club Notes 29th August

‘My Dress’ One Mile Challenge is Back!
If you have been thinking of taking up jogging or running for the first time or if you are a ‘lapsed runner’ who wishes to make a come back, then the ‘My Dress’ – sponsored One Mile Challenge is the ideal starting point for you.  Over the past few years, many have found this five week challenge to be the perfect preparation for our Winter League which begins in October.  You can walk, jog or run the one mile distance on a grass surface and each week your time will be recorded.  This is not a competitive event and the emphasis, as always, is on enjoyment.
The challenge begins on Tuesday, September 6th at 6.30p.m. at the Sean Kelly Sports Centre, Carrick-on-Suir and will conclude on Tuesday October the 4th.
