Congratulations and a huge thanks to those who participated and helped raise funds as part of our recent 5km barefoot run.

 

We had many members from across our clubs including Antrim, Armagh, Ballysillan, Belfast, Loughmoss, Lisburn and others.

We gathered at the Lough Shore park, in Antrim on the 12th June.Weather was fine although a nice rain spell helped cool us all down during the run.

Sensei James, introduced some high speed fitness running and then took a short training session with parents joining in, getting a flavor of what is taught during weekly training classes.

We raised over £1,000 to date. This will go toward providing funds to help younger squad members attend future competition opportunities which are currently being planned out.

 

 

Particular thanks goes to Angela & Stephen McCracken from our Antrim club who hosted some refreshments at their house shortly after.

 

 

Cake_2016Grainne Carson, mum of young Jack from our Belfast Dojo, kindly baked this lovely cake. Sensei Brunton felt it was a shame to eat it, but  we enjoyed it nonetheless.

All those thoroughly enjoyed the day and we all returned with no injuries, albeit some tender feet.

Should you have any sponsorship yet to send in, please do so to your instructor as soon as possible.

Thank you
