Their leader is Martin Fitzmaurice. He says “We are a voluntary group set up just over two years ago and we have a walk / run twice every week. We meet on Tuesday evenings at 7pm and Saturday mornings at 9am – normally at The Ball Court in the Friary Field – across from Londis.
We welcome all levels of fitness and if you walk or run, you will be in good company. We do our best to establish what you can do and what you wish to do and will work together to try to improve everyone to their desired level. We all have different aspirations; from just getting out off the sofa to completing a Marathon, but in either case – we will try to help you. It has become a great social outing also, and you still meet lots of similar minded people. Come and join us any time for a trial and see if you like what we do.
We are affiliated to Mayo Athletic Club and Athletics Ireland. We stage one of their 5k Summer Series races. January is a great month to make a new start and where better could you go. We also have a dedicated Facebook page “ Ballyhaunis Fit4Life” and you can see and add comments there.
