2018 AGM Photos

The 2018 Annual General Meeting was held on the Monday the 1st of October with a record number of members present. Our speaker was Sonia O’Sullivan: Cross Country World champion, four time Olympian and silver medalist, former holder of the 2000m world record are just some of her achievements. Sonia took us through her career sharing her triumphs and some disappointments. She recounted her history of running her seven marathons as well giving insights into her training.

This is definitely a first: Sonia has written an article prompted by the AGM!
