Boyne AC juveniles back on the track recently.
As the country starts to slowly get back to some sort of normality, adjusting to the 'new norm' is certainly a challenge for all. However, the hard-working team of committee, coaches and athletes in Boyne AC have all risen to the challenge to ensure a safe return for all to their training sessions.
With their own roadmap for a return for all age groups spread over the coming weeks, the Covid committee are ensuring that the plans in place are strictly followed and the cooperation and support of all the athletes has made their job much easier.
While the senior members of the club have resumed their training over the last few weeks, the older juvenile members have now returned to their planned sessions, with the younger juveniles due to return in the coming weeks.
Under the guidance of coaches Ken Meier and Keith Byrne and other members of the coaching team, the young athletes are all delighted to be back among their peers and enjoying the return to active training.

While most competitions for this year have been cancelled due to the pandemic, there are some planned national events scheduled for the older juveniles in the coming months, giving them a target for their training plans, and with the Lourdes Stadium now reopened they can really focus on their goals.
Keeping themselves active over the last few weeks, some of the senior members of Boyne have completed the 100k in 30 days challenge for breast cancer Ireland. A fantastic initiative to get people out and about, to keep fit and to raise awareness and much needed funds for a worthwhile cause.
Pounding the roads over the month of June, club members Mairead Hallinan and Catherine Russell made sure that they reached their target well within the 30 days, keeping each other company along the way.
