All the races were a great success and our athletes performed excellently.
Thanks were extended to all who make the club a success from coaches, members, parents & athletes to bus drivers, local landowners who allow us to use their land, those who donate to club & support our fundraisers.
Our athletes are the most important part of the club and everyone should encourage and praise them. There is so much benefit a child can get by joining an athletic club from friendship; fun and fitness they also learn team work. Team work played a key role in Glenmore winning the Johnny Mullen Cup this year.
We would also like to commend the senior athletes who have been instrumental in helping to organise races & in promoting the club. Please see www.glenmoreac.com for further details of the AGM.
