After only reforming in the Spring, the atheltic have had a very successful summer. Throughout the summer, track and field events in Santry and Irishtown stadiums kept our athletes very busy.
There were some great preformances by many of the Juveniles. Many discovered new sports that they had never tried before such as Shot putt, Discus, Javelin, High-Jump, as well as the normal running events.
Many of our small athletes also took part in the Little Athletics programme, which ran in Tallaght and Cushenstown.
A strong team of Athletes also went from Lusk to compete in the Dublin heats of the community games. On one of those rare hot weekends, the athletes performed excellently with several runners just missing out on awards.
We cannot forget our adults athletes also - Angela, Donna, Paula, Louise, Lisa, Caroline, Kizzy, Karl and Sharon have all being taking part in races throughput the summer. Training for the Dublin city marathon is also on target so we will be expecting good times from all.
Training took a short break in August but we will be back in full swing on Tuesday 1st September behind Lusk National School. We are also training on Sunday mornings at 10:30am in Ardgillan. Meet at the car park and start off your Sunday on a fit note.
The club is open to all ages and abilities. As the club is only in start up mode, there will be no serious competition involved. However some members will be competing in the Addidas series in the Pheonix Park later in the year.
