Once again there was a fantastic turnout at Union wood this morning for the weekly gathering of the renowned Sligo AC's 7:57 club. At the time of going to post the word on the ground was that a splinter group was spotted heading in the direction of Rosses Point as the 7:57 was gathering at Union, It is also rumoured that the discussion of the splinter group was focusing on a speed session which took place under the cover of darkness last Tuesday on the Hazelwood Road where it is alleged the average speed was above the legel limit for the area, it was also mentioned that one of the offenders was herd saying during one of the ferocious bursts of speed "when are we starting the session", the same offender is no stranger to entering races under an alias, The club Chairman is investigating these allegations. It is hoped that all athletes are enjoying their running and we hope to see the numbers increasing each week. A suggestion was also made that a new camera will need to be purchased with a telescopic lens as due to increased numbers the "old reliable iphone" no longer can handle the crowd's.
Please don't forget that Sligo AC's AGM is been held in the Sligo Southern Hotel on Monday January 30th at 7:30pm, all members are asked to attend and all newcomers are most welcome.
