10th Oct…Number of club runs – June to August 2014

run6As well as being one of the largest athletic clubs in Cork City, it’s probably safe to say that Eagle AC organise more training runs than most other clubs. To help illustrate this, Gerard Down has kindly gone back through all of the club e-mails for the summer and compiled the list below which shows all of the club runs between June and August 2014. It amounts to an impressive 58 in total and that doesn’t include any track sessions at CIT on Tuesday or Thursday evenings or other informal smaller runs that members organise themselves.

The review period which comes after the Cork City Marathon was probably no busier than any other time of the year. Taking the year as a whole, the club probably organises somewhere between 200 to 250 training runs per annum.

Total weekend runs June, July, August = 58
