It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of 2022 which has been a remarkably busy and successful year for Lusk Athletic Club on all fronts with so many great performances in Track and Field events, in road and cross-country races by so many of our adult and juvenile athletes.Lusk Athletic Club had a phenomenal 50 club members complete the Dublin Marathon on Sunday 30th October with no less than 4 athletes breaking the 3-hour barrier. Across the pond another 3 club members completed the New York marathon on the 6thof November in very unseasonal temperatures (22 Celsius).Well done to Alex Bell, Dan Cronin and Fiachra Beirne. Great credit is due to all the coaches and athletes who diligently followed a 20-week marathon programme from June onwards. Congratulations to Cara McNally on a great run to finish in the top 10 of the Under 19 race at the Dublin Junior cross country championships which took place at Citywest golf course in November and to our Fit 4 Life group who graduated by completing the Donabate Parkrun 5K in November with great support from their coaches and club members who either ran the 5K with them or volunteered at the event.Thanks to the club committee and club members who put a huge amount of work into setting up the OTC which will be of massive benefit to all club athletes training over the winter months. Strength and conditioning every Friday evening open to all. The Lusk Athletic Club Christmas Party and awards night took place in the Man O War Gastro Pub on Saturday 3rd December and was another great club occasion. Well done to all who helped to organise this event and to all the award winners for 2022.
