APRÉS RUN/FIT4LIFE


Aprés Run Cork Fit4Life

  Aprés Run Fit4Life DSC01037is designed to give people the opportunity to get fit and enjoy running in structured  environment. Participants set their own goals and are assisted by the trained Fit4Life leaders in the club. The emphasis is on  improving fitness in a fun, sociable environment and no previous experience is required. All  ability levels are catered for and participants exercise with others of a similar fitness level.

How It Works

Aprés Run is the fun part of Togher AC and is a Fit4Life group within Athletics Ireland. At each run qualified Fit4Life leaders are there to welcome you and people of all fitness levels are welcome to come along. It is aimed at people who are non-competitive runners at all levels from those who have never ran before to seasoned marathon runners. The training nights feature group runs, with plenty of chat. People of similar fitness levels run together. Members enter 5k, 10k, half and full marathon road races throughout the year. There is an emphasis on support and friendship and the members gather for tea/coffee or brunch after most training runs! The group also organises at least one trip abroad each year to a half marathon/marathon.

Generally the group meets at the following days:photo 3

– Tuesdays at 6.30pm starting from the Mardyke Arena Track (3 mile run)
– Tuesdays at 7.15pm speed work session at the Mardyke Arena track
