In September 2014, Track-Attack began with a total of 34 participants on its opening night. As word began to spread, the numbers began to swell and this year to date, 252 members have joined the Track-Attack family. Members hail from well beyond the Borrisoleigh parish boundaries and all are welcome and encouraged to become part of this unique group.
The success of the group could be attributed to the friendly and encouraging atmosphere that is an integral part of what the group is all about. Monday nights can be as competitive or non-competitive as any individual wishes to make them.
.
The upcoming 10 week Series is entitled the “Track-Attack Champions League”. This is purely a fun aspect to proceedings. Following the opening night, teams will be broken into teams which in turn will be broken into groups and like always, we will be following the Track-Attack motto, it’s all about improvement and not about speed.
.
All details of the structure will be posted on a new Track-Attack notice board that will be in the pavilion and we are confident that it will create plenty of banter between the opening night and when it all culminates with the “Champions League Final” on December 12th.

How can I join? For anyone that wishes to join, simply come along and register on the opening night. Membership is €10 for adults and €5 for under 18’s. If you are already a member of a different athletics club, you can still come along and join up as we are not an affiliated athletics club and joining us will have no effect on your existing club membership.
.
There is a nightly fee of €2 per adult while under 18’s are free of charge. Where possible, we ask for members to pay the €20 on the opening night as it cuts down on the amount of administration work that the volunteers that put our activities together have to do.
.
Participants will have a choice of 3 different distances on the night namely 3km, 4km or 6km. You can run, jog, walk or a combination of all 3, do whatever you feel comfortable with.
.
The absolute beauty of Track-Attack is that all members of a family can come and participate and compete in the same sporting and recreational activity. We have members of all ages and every one of them are of equal importance to the overall success of the group.
.
Every participant will be able to follow their progress over the 10 weeks by following us on Facebook at Borrisoleigh Track Attack. Times will be enlisted each week there but will be done by using membership numbers and not their names.
8pm is the kick-off time next Monday night. Registration will begin in the pavilion from 7:15pm and we would ask people to come early to avoid a last minute rush. A warm up will begin at 7:40pm. This is not compulsory but we would encourage participants to partake in it.
.
So be it for fitness, fun, meeting new people, whatever the reason, dust the cobwebs off the runners and head to the Borrisoleigh track next Monday night. It might be tough to get yourself started, you may think of plenty of excuses not to do it but put them to one side and commit to doing it for 10 weeks. When you’re part of this group, you will find it easier to do it each week as you will nearly feel like you’re letting someone down if you don’t go!! One things we can guarantee; you will not regret doing it when you cross the finish line on December 12th.
