Track Attack

Get Active with Scoil Naomh Cualán

The track at the Borrisoleigh GAA field is the place to be next Friday night (8th) if you have any interest in testing yourself over the golden One Mile distance. On the night, the local Track-Attack Club are teaming up with Scoil Naomh Cualán to provide an hour of running, jogging and walking which is entitled “Get Active with Scoil Naomh Cualán.

Registration on the night will start at 6:15pm in the GAA pavilion where the entry fees will be €5 for adults. €2 for Under 18’s with a maximum of €10 for a family.

The first activity of the night will be the Women’s Mile at 7pm. Here you can sprint, run, jog, walk or crawl. It doesn’t matter what you do, it’s participation that matters.

Next up will be the Primary School Kids Mile. This will get under way at 7:20pm. Do you have to a pupil of Naomh Cualán to enter? Absolutely not, we welcome and encourage all comers. If a child do not feel comfortable going without an adult, a parent is more than welcome to run or walk the mile with them.

The final outing of the night will be the Men’s Mile which will start at 7:40pm. Again it’s the participation that counts so root out the runners and head to Borrisoleigh for a mile under lights.

Once the Men’s Mile is completed, participants are invited to the Parish Centre for some light refreshments which is being organised by the Parents Association of Scoil Naomh Cualán and the presentation of prizes.

On the night, there will be prizes of hand-crafted Irish slate medals presented to the first 3 individual women, men, boys and girls. There is also a team event for a perpetual trophy for the pupils of Scoil Naomh Cualán and again the winning team will receive the aforementioned medals.

The Mile will be held on the track which is fully lit up and safe from the perils of any traffic.
