200-pix-news-resultsClub Notes…by Karen Bevan

Evening Everyone

I hope this poor weather is not having too much of a bad impact on the weekly training. It certainly makes getting out that door a bit more difficult; but Christmas is approaching, the shortest day is almost upon us and the evenings will be brightening up again within a few weeks! Keep up the good work!

Well done to all who ran in Clonakilty Full and Half Marathon and 10km last weekend, yet again a great representation from Eagle AC, Ruairi has the results below. Great running on a cold day over a tough course.

Spring Marathons.
If anyone is interested in a spring marathon Eddie Trindle & Ken Nyhan are heading to Hamburg at the end of April. Marathon is on Sunday, April 29th. Give Eddie a shout if interested. Current price is €80. Guaranteed entry. Direct flights from Dublin.

HOPE foundation Fundraiser
Thanks to Brian for the below invite and a fundraiser for a worthy cause; if people are available to support this on the day …

Brian Fiona are having a Mulled Wine Mince Pies afternoon on Saturday 16th December in support of HOPE and we would like to invite you to join us. Brian’s daughter Lily is travelling to Kolkata, India as part of HOPE’s Immersion Program. This program is directly responsible for more than half of the charity’s annual fundraising and goes directly to their projects in Kolkata.
I know there’s a lot going on that day but, if you’re out about near the Douglas area, it would be great if you could call in. Anytime from 3pm to 7pm would be good. Husbands, wives, partners, smallies all welcome!
Thank you, Brian McGuire
