Borrisoleigh Track-Attack is Back

Monday 23rd of September will see Track-Attack begin its sixth year in existence when we take to the newly revamped track at the Borrisoleigh sports field. In what is an exciting time for the North Tipp village with the imminent opening of the new sports hall, the coming months will be a hive of competitive and recreational activities which can only be a huge plus for the general levels of fitness and well-being within a great catchment area.

During the summer months, a major revamp has been carried out on the track. It has been widened and all resurfaced, it is 1.3km in length and it is fully lit up all the way around it.

Our new 11 week Track-Attack series will cater for every individual from walkers to the most experienced athletes and of course all ages. Participants will be able to choose from five different distances namely 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 miles. Anyone attending primary school have to participate in the one mile distance while all other ages can pick any of the five distances.

All distances will start when the start whistle echoes at 8pm sharp. Please note that proceedings will start bang on time and it is up to every individual to be at their relevant starting point which will be well sign posted.

To participate in the series, you have to be a member of the Track-Attack Club. To become a member costs €10 for adults and €5 for under 18’s. The entry fee for the series thereafter is €20 for adults while under 18’s are free of charge.

As with all of Track-Attack events, there will be a fun aspect to the series. Participants will be put into teams and points will be allocated each week for achieving various targets that will be set from week to week. On the final night, the winning team will be presented with the new Track-Attack Bourke top which is to be soon launched.

A slight change to this series will be that the Jumping Jack-Attack event that we organised for primary school kids is discontinued. The Park Pavilion will be open each night for the kids to go into until parents are finished their run/walk.

On Monday 23rd, registration will start at 6:45pm and will finish at 7:45pm. Once you register and pay your entry fee, you will not have to register any other night, you can make your way straight to the start line.

The hardest step for anyone thinking about undertaking a new fitness regime is the one out the front door. You will never regret making that step once you’re finished your run/walk. Join the Track-Attack rollercoaster and you will be encourage every step of the way. See you at the start line on the 23rd…..
