Run away from 2020 with Youghal Camogie Club!!
Are you fed up with 2020? Do you want to start 2021 with the right foot forward (literally!), Have you plans for a new you in 2021??? Why not join Youghal Camogie Club on our quest to get from the “ sideline to 5k.”
Starting on January 4th, we are offering you the chance to join our 9 week running programme while also helping us raise some much needed funds for our club. 2020 has been a tough year on us all mentally, physically and for voluntary run clubs like ours, financially. We have had most of our normal fundraisers cancelled. So hence the plan to get fit AND try get a few bob to buy slitors as well!! Sounds like a plan!
So what does it involve?? If you sign up, you get access to a closed face book group, on this group you will get a guided weekly plan telling you what you have to do for the week ahead. This training can be done alone or with other members of your “bubble”, so you have no excuse! This information will include your training plan for that week, some tips on stretching, injury prevention and some running tips and diet advice. You will also receive a discounted rate from John Grace Physical Therapy & Sports Injury Clinic for any niggles you may have. On this group, you will have support from other participants, you will get to see how they are doing and what obstacles they have met and overcome. You can help them and they can help you!
We will have weekly interviews with people who have done a similar programme and have since completed marathon’s , that sounds good , doesn’t it???! We will also chat with other participants to see how they are getting along. There will be plenty support on your journey so even though you will be training alone we will still all be in this together. There is no age limit on this, it is a run not a race!
This programme is open to EVERYONE. We have spoken to plenty of people who have done this programme and are now doing 5k as a warm up, IT CAN BE DONE AND YOU CAN DO IT!
This 9 week programme will end on March 7th. On the week of Sunday March 14th to 21st we are asking you all to run your St. Patricks day themed virtual 5k ( adhering to any government restrictions at the time) and tag us at #sidelineto5kyoughalcamogieclub, all participants will be entered into a draw for some great spot prizes.
All of this advice and support will cost you only €20, this includes your weekly plan etc,a very cool tee shirt and entry in to the virtual fun 5k at the end. What about those of you who want to support Youghal Camogie Club but are already running 5k and more I hear you ask? You can still sign up, but for the fun run only at a reduced rate of €12 and still receive you tee shirt.
