Schull Junior Running Group

Schull Junior Running Group trains weekly on Tuesdays from 3.30 – 4.30pm during school term time, meeting by Schull tennis courts, irrespective of the weather. Bring along water to drink and wear comfortable footwear and clothing.

Schull Junior Running Group currently caters for primary school aged children from across the Mizen peninsula. All members receive one of our group t-shirts for training.

Our emphasis is on the children having fun whilst at the same time getting fit through running. Children are taught training and fitness techniques and get to experience a wide rage of running activities throughout the year.

We also participate in various athletics events throughout the year including cross country running, road running and track and field events. For those children aged 8 or above interested in participating in competition we register them with Bantry Athletic Club, and they wear the Bantry AC club vest for such events. We are delighted to have formed this very positive partnership with Bantry AC enabling the group to participate in events organised under the Athletics Association of Ireland banner.

Contact Sarah McKnight or Deirdre Ni Challanain for further details.
