St Andrew’s Athletic Club, Ashbourne

Home / St Andrew’s Athletic Club, Ashbourne - February 4, 2020 , by claire

We are an Active School and encourage all our pupils to take up sport in order to get their recommended sixty minutes of physical activity every day! We’d like to help link our pupils with local sporting opportunities and to this end Michelle from St. Andrew’s Athletic Club in Ashbourne came in to speak to boys and girls from Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes today.

Michelle explained they train in all weather on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-8pm and new members are welcome. Children who’d like to try out athletics are welcome to give it a go and have a free week of sessions before deciding if they’d like to sign up and join. Children can train once or twice or three times a week and opt to compete if they like but Michelle explained the emphasis is on fun.

The club also do a two kilometre run in Ashbourne on Sundays and are hoping to establish a junior parkrun in Ashbourne. Junior Parkrun Info

Families interested in running and fitness could plan a day of athletics with their upcoming 2k race for children and 5k and 10k options this April. St Andrew’s AC 2/5/10k
