400s tonight! See you at Londonderry Park at 7:15pm 🏃🏽🏃🏽🏃🏽

**JUNIOR TRAINING TONIGHT CANCELLED** Unfortunately due to the wonderful August weather, we have taken the decision to cancel the Junior training tonight. The training was due to take place on the grass, and with the rain that is forecast to be all afternoon, we have concerns about the health and safety of the Juniors on that surface. Please spread the word. We will keep you posted as to when the Junior sessions will resume, but the Juniors have been really enthusiastic, and great to see the next generation of Striders getting trained up. Thanks to Coach Eugene, the sessions were awesome 😀

Volume Oxygen Maximum (VO2 Max) session tonight, 19:15 at Londonderry Park for session/safety brief. VO2 Max is simply the threshold at which an athletes body can uptake oxygen.
