Tipperary/Kilkenny...Carrick-on-Suir AC Winter League begins Tuesday 21st October.

Carrick-on-Suir AC have announced the start of their third Super-Valu Winter League. The club has decided to stick with a similar formula as the past two years but there will be one or two changes to the format. As with last year there will be 2 distances choose from-the 2.5k and the 5k however only the 5k will count for the league. The 2.5k will be a Fit 4 Life style training run and will really act as stepping stone for those who wish to compete over the 5k distance.
The league will now take place over 12 weeks as opposed to 14. Once again the winners will be those who show the greatest improvement over the course of the league, not necessarily the fastest.

The registration night for this year’s Winter League took place at the Kildalton Agricultural College in Pilltown on Tuesday last, however runners can come along and register at any stage throughout the series. Entry fee is €3 for Athletics Ireland members and €5 for non Athletics Ireland members. This is another change from last year and it is hoped it will encourage runners to join the club and make a saving in the process. There is also a €5 number deposit which can be paid on each runner’s first night.
The league proper will start next Tuesday 21st October with registration from 6:30-6:50 p.m. and all runners off at 7 p.m. sharp.
As with last year the number one rule is ‘no bib-no run’ so please wear your reflective vest while running as it will be dark and the road is not closed.
