Sprint Relay Workshop- Limerick

25th of November 2018

10am- 1pm

Athletics Ireland are delighted to welcome you to our Sprint Relay Workshop which will be taking place in the University of Limerick on Sunday 25th of November .

In recent seasons the national relay programme has made positive progress. The 2018 season alone saw six national teams compete at major championships. Three national records were achieved by the U20 Women’s 4x100m , U20 Men’s 4x100m  and Senior Women’s 4x100m.

The U20 women’s 4x100m also created history in 2018, claiming a world championship silver medal, Ireland’s first global outdoor relay medal.

This relay workshop will be lead and delivered by Karen Kirk, who guided the Irish women's 4x100m relay team to a sliver medal at the World U20 championships.

Karen has worked with relays from youth to senior level, and encourages those coaching relays at club and schools level to attend.
