February – The month of love…

February 23rd – Well done to members Joanne Dillon and Roy Crawley on completing the Fitzers 5K in Dundalk this morning. Great times from them both with newcomer Roy finishing in 24:52 and Joanne excitedly obtaining a new PB of 27:35. To quote Joanne “when I joined the club last April I couldn’t run from the church in Ardee to the bottom of the town without having to stop and walk” It’s moments like this that make our club. Congratulations Joanne and Roy.

February 9th – Two exceptional athletes from our Club brought home well deserved medals yesterday and both ladies should be very proud of themselves. Kya Mothiram won Gold in the U14 Shot Putt at the Leinster Indoor Championships in Athlone with a personal best throw of 10.82m and Bernie Balfe took home the Bronze at the Irish National 50K Championships in Kildare in a super impressive time of 4:20:56. A fantastic achievement for both our athletes. Congratulations from all at Ardee & District Athletic Club.
