Training also takes place at various times on school holidays at the Hill of Tara. Times for this can change.
Athletes of all ages and levels are welcome making it a good activity for those wanting to learn or improve their running skills as well as those looking to get fit and meet new friends.
The school has invested in a wide-range of athletics equipment and facilities that cater for an array of disciplines such as cross-country, hurdles, high jump and javelin.
The school tries as much as possible to bring all those who participate in the club to cross-country and track and field meets during the academic year with the cross-country season running from August until March and the track and field season from March to May.
Students are categorized by age for events with Minors being U-14; Juniors U-15; Inters U-17 and Seniors U-19.
