To keep us all connected & running during this crazy time, we are setting you a Strava art challenge with a prize!
Following on from this afternoon’s advice from the government, we, the committee, have decided to suspend all club activities and events until further notice.
We have a duty of care to you, our members, as well as thinking about the health and safety of our families and the wider community.
Therefore all club sessions are cancelled with immediate effect.
Training plans will be available from group leaders for those still wishing to train by themselves.
The last Winter Grand Prix session tomorrow night (Tuesday 17 March) is also cancelled.
The AGM on Thursday 19 March is postponed and we will look at rescheduling this later in the year.
Both our club races, the Terry O’Gara 5k due to take place on 26 April and the Gordon Smith Relays due to take place on 13 May, are also postponed. We will look at suitable new dates and announce the new dates in due course.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update you by email and across our social media sites as the government advice changes.
Remember, people need people, even if over the coming weeks and months, we have to do this at a distance.

Finally, a weekend without a storm, or storm-related car-parking implications! Us green and golds were chomping at the bit to get back out at a Harrier league x-country. The sun was out at Alnwick (as was the wind unfortunately) and we had some secret weapons up our sleeve!
Our Wallsend Juniors retained their Championship status in the Blyth Sportshall NOTAN Series for the third year in a row!
It was great to see such a fantastic turn out from our young athletes.
Kasper Pearson was the only child to receive a Grade 1 and broke records in the standing long jump and push throw! There were lots of new faces too, which was wonderful to see and everyone gave it their all in every event. The events included a sprint, throw, endurance run, standing long jump and vertical throw.
Full results here.
Remember the date: 13-02-2020
Remember the location: Armagh 5k International
