National Road Relay Team Selection

The following is the outline for selection criteria for this Sunday’s (April 28) National Road Relay’s which take place in Raheny.

Men’s Team

The team’s for the Senior Men, Master 35 and Master 50’s team will be announced on Friday April 26.

While this is a change in tradition, it is not possible for the men’s captain Dick Hooper to announce the team immediately after the Raheny Open Mile.

We encourage all athlete’s wishing to compete in the national road relay’s to compete in the Raheny Open Mile, which forms part of the selection process on form for the National Road Relays.

Women’s Team

The main selection for the Senior women, Masters 35 and Masters 50 is the Raheny Open Mile taking place on 24th April.

Women’s captain Orla Manley would encourage everyone to take part in this race. However this is not the sole basis for selection, other factors do feature such as current form overall.

If you are unable to take part in the mile but would still like to be considered for selection please let Orla know and provide either a recent time for a 1 mile/2mile or 5km race if possible.

Please note: In order to run in the relays club subs must be paid and your AAI Number activated for 2019.
