Track Training Available

As a club we are continuously reviewing ways to improve.  Some club members are interested in having a 400m track available for training, so we have looked into some options.  The track at the Mardyke is looking like a viable option.  The club has decided to pay for one session a week, initially on a trial basis, for one month.  If enough people are interested, the cost should not be prohibitive.
We are therefore looking to hear from members who may be interested in going to the Mardyke track once a week on a Monday night.  There are two slots available - either 6pm-7pm or 7pm-8pm.  The 6pm-7pm slot may suit people who work in the city.
The cost per member for the trial month would be the usual training fee of €2.  The session will be in place of the speed session at Midleton College, for those that are definitely interested.  The session in Midleton College hockey pitch will continue during the winter months as usual for those not availing of the session at the Mardyke – the start date for both venues will be announced in due course.
Please let me know if you have a strong interest in the Mardyke, or if you have any queries.  Also please let me know if you have a preference for either time slot, and if so, if the other time slot would not suit at all.  We will take this into consideration when choosing which slot to book.
As this session will be open to all levels, please also let me know if you would be willing to be a training leader at one of these sessions.  All it would entail is pacing the laps for your group.  We would probably set a session at the beginning of each session, and all groups would do the same session, at different speeds.
You can either reply to this email at or text/ring me on the club phone at 086-1931338.
Best regards,
