Profile of Athletic Clubs in Cork...
This post is for those of you out there who are the PRO's/Secretarys of the various Cork athletic clubs. If you look through the results of any of the local races, you'll notice that a lot of runners are not members of any club. I could well imagine that from the point of view of someone starting off, they might think that athletic clubs are only for 'serious' or 'fast' athletes. They would not realise that most clubs have members just like them. Or perhaps there are those who are doing their own thing and feel there is no need for them to join a club.
So, why not promote your own club and see if you can attract a few new members? I'll put up the info that you will supply here on this blog as a seperate post. If your club has a website, I'll link to it in the post. If you don't have a website, I can put up a page on another website with your club details. It may not be as good as a full blown website but at least it will give your club a space on the net where people can find out some information about you.
Perhaps you could supply your club information using the following guidelines...

Club Name : ??????
Town / Catchment area : ????????
Members : How many Seniors (Adults - %Men, %Women), Juniors?
Activities : What are your members involved in? Road Races? Track races? Other track & field events? Cross Country? Races overseas?
Training : Do your members meet for training runs on the road? Where? Do you do speedwork at a track? Where? Other types of training?
Events : Do you host a road race during the year? Other events?
Contact Name : Name, Phone number, E-mail address (Optional)
Website : ???
Any other info : ???

If you want to supply a group photo of your club members or anything like that, you can. Send on the info to my e-mail address which is shown at the bottom of the right hand column.
