Hares & Hounds continues this week Tuesday night @ 6:30pm
Hare and hounds part deux(this time it’s personal)
After last week where the hares got roasted on a fast frying pan,the struggle to gain the upper hand continues.the hounds worked well last week but after a good weekend of racing results,there may be some dog eat dog jostling amongst the pack.
The hares will be hyper motivated to silence the barking mutts.
Not to split hairs,but if the hares split they may be weakened but if you get stay together ,they may carry passengers .who can tell?fur may fly!
Group one will hopefully be expanded this week as more folks enter the fray.if you are in this group,then feel free to jump in with hares/hounds as ye meet on the road..
Let’s get ready to ruuuuuummmmmmmmmble!
Open to club members only – but why not join up 🙂 your always welcome. If your part of another club associate membership is available

Open to all from any club or code – you just need a bike and a helmet and a licence from either Cycling ireland or Triathlon Ireland
Racing results from the CRNS crew
We got to hand it to our Dutch Maestro, Rene stole the show and took top honors in Ras an Laois in the A4 race and with that promotion to a3. Kieran Maloney took a top 6 performance and this also see him rise with Rene to the a3 ranks.
The club now has a really strong a3 team, it is really great to see and hopefully it wont be long before we see the results in A3 start to roll in. We have been close with Karl Fogarty placing around the top 10 twice this season and with the return of the weekly racing action with the club it wont be long before he cracks a poduim.
Another great performance over the weekend was Richie Quin taking his first top 10 as an A2 rider, no easy feet and we cant wait to see how he progresses as the weeks go buy

The 10miler is coming up in the Run the banner series. Best of luck to all taking part.
The Eamon Maloney 10km took place last weekend in Ennis with a great turn out from the club and training group of SMB runners.
The fast route led to a lot of smiling faces but the most impressive run of the day was by the returning Neil Jordan. The Rise & Shine strength & Conditioning classes with coach Erin have the Old lad in great shape and although he got very nervous running past the court house ( his fastest km split we believe )
Great run from Rory sexton to grab second place, we were missing the battle of the training partners as David Richardson has a niggle.
a huge well done to all who took part and wore the singlets with pride. If you need a singlet contact the club facebook page. STL will sort you out
See full results here http://www.eamonmoloney10k.ie/
A great run from Becky the bullet again at the Munster 4 miler with her Ennis Track club mates claiming the O35 club team prize.
Did you know that we have an Ironman group – 2 teams heading to 2 different Ironman comps

Marathon news :
We have two lads going dutch soon for the Rotterdam marathon so the very best of luck to Diarmuid and Paul as they take on the challenge no doubt there will be a story or two
Right folks, apologies this is a day or two late but you all get up to so much
Onward and upwards and we look forward to seeing you all at the Banner Duathlon
Yours in sports
