Congratulations to everyone who took part in the commonwealth baton duathon on wednesday there were some very quick time indeed well done all. anyway don't forget tonight's aquathon (swim / run) in Limavady (see below if you haven't registered yet).

Given that there has been a duathlon on Wednesday past, an Aquathon this evening, some crowd call one direction playing in Dublin this weekend (apparently everyone is going) and it's a bank holiday this weekend we haven spoken to some parents and as a result there will be no training this weekend.
