Sports round-up

Lucan Harriers are back - and back in style. The last few months have left so many of our athletes so disappointed as events were cancelled not just all over Ireland but all over the globe. Training as organised groups was forbidden for a period but thankfully in accordance with Health and Safety Guidelines from Athletics Ireland we have been able to resume training with some restrictions by adhering to Social Distancing and Contract Tracing.


There are a very limited number of race events scheduled for the remainder of 2020 with big events such as the Dublin City Marathon cancelled as well as all the juvenile and master grades for which we regularly compete at a very high level. Saturday morning's Parkruns have also been missed by so many in Griffeen, Corkagh and several other Parks around Dublin and down the country.

We recently organised a clean-up day at our track facility and wish to extend sincere gratitude to all our friends who turned up and got stuck in weeding and sweeping but keeping 2 metre distance at all times.

We marked ActiveYouths end of season training on Wednesday 29th July with our very own sports night. We had multiple events, 200 and 400m races, long jump and javelin.

It was a fantastic evening of both fun and competition, celebrating all who took part, our winners and those selected as coaches' choice.

Big thank you to all who organised tonight, parents who volunteered and our team of coaches.

We wish all at ActiveYouth a nice break for August and look forward to seeing everyone back in September.
