2014: Fit4Life resumes

1388307311212Mayo AC’s four Fit4Life groups – Ballinrobe, Ballyhaunis, Castlebar and Claremorris – have resumed training and registration for 2014 is now open.
The Fit 4 Life project is aimed at providing opportunities to people who wish to develop a healthier lifestyle through walking and running and in the process enjoy themselves, make new friends and achieve personal goals.
Over recent years a number of Fit4life members have progressed to achieve personal best times, complete a range of different distances, and some have won medals at National Championships representing Mayo AC.
Ballinrobe group meet at the Green on Thursday evenings at 7.30 and Sunday mornings at 10.00.  Contact: Joan 087 672 6029
Ballyhaunis group meet at the Multi Purpose Ball Court in the Friary Field Abbey St. opposite Londis on Tuesday evenings at 7 pm and Saturday mornings at 9 am.
Leader Martin Fitzmaurice says “we did quite well in 2013 with 12 of our group ran the Achill Half Marathon in July. A few more completed the Sea to Summit and 5 of us including myself completed the Athlone Half Marathon in September – for four of us it was our first time running 13.1 miles.
 I’m sure we will have a number of people hoping to run half marathons this year. There is talk of the Craughwell 10 mile in March. We will also take part in the 5k Series and other Mayo AC initiatives as usual”. Contact 087 245 5989
