5K Challenge / Dúshlán

The Athletics department are organising a 5K fun walk / jog / run in May as part of a healthy lifestyle initiative. A4 fliers have been distributed to all classes with a sample 8 week programme for either a walk or jog. It is hoped that this will become a whole school event. It should be particularly useful to Third and Sixth Years who will taking on their own “marathon” that is the state examinations in June.

The first date on the calendar is Saturday April 2nd and the programme has 3 activities per week. Some members of the Athletics teams will be available at lunchtimes initially on the soccer pitch to go through the programme and thereby help students “through their paces”. More information will be posted via the website and app notifications. Bígí linn.
