In a behind closed doors session on Sunday the Clonliffe juvenile athletes underwent final preparations in advance of the first round of the juvenile spring series. On hand to give some tips were two of Clonliffe’s ace 400 metre men: Prague bound, for the European Indoors, Dara Kervick, the national indoor 400m champion and seasoned international and former European U/23 silver medallist Brian Gregan.

The Spring Series starts next Sunday, the 8th of March, with an 11.30 start. The programme is:
U/9 Boys and Girls 500m
U/11 Boys and Girls 600m
U/13 Boys and Girls 800m
U/15 Boys and Girls 1000m
U/17 Boys and Girls 1500m
With separate races for boys and girls there will be a total of ten races. Each race will commence immediately after the previous race has completed so the aim is that the programme will be finished within 60 minutes.
Clonliffe Harriers look forward on Sunday to welcoming to the Morton Stadium athletes from Skerries A.C., Lusk A.C., Portmarknock A.C. and Celtic DCH.
If there are any club members available or parents of juveniles available your help on Sunday would be greatly appreciated.
