Underage Wexford Winter League put back a week due to weather

The start of the annual Winter League at Enniscorthy Sports Hub has been put back to 7pm, Friday, Nov 16 as the forecast is giving dire weather for this coming Friday.  The series continues on the following two Fridays, Nov 23 and 30. The league caters for all age categories from U8 to U16. There is even a 50m run for “Tiny Tots”. The distances are all very manageable, going from 300m for U8 up to 1000m for U15 and U16. The League is spread over three evenings, the first of which takes place Nov 9th, the next on Nov 16th and the final one on Nov 23rd. The vibe is both encouraging and relaxed which makes the event popular with clubs throughout the county. It serves as both a great sharpener for experienced athletes and a perfect introduction for those new to the sport. There is an award to any athlete winning all three races as well as participation medals for those completing the series. There are also awards for top boys’ club, top girls’ club and top overall club. The picture above shows the young athletes of United Striders AC who were last year’s overall winners.
