Developing Sport in Co. Laois

The LSP initiative was developed by the Sport Ireland in order to create a national structure to co-ordinate and promote the development of sport at local level. Sport Ireland identified that the effective development of sport and recreation at the local level would be best delivered through the adoption of a partnership approach between all bodies and organisations involved in the delivery of sport and recreation.

The SVT Activity & Wellness HUB are delighted to announce an exciting new initiative at Vicarstown junior parkrun – a weekly 2KM run, for 4 to 14 year olds, along the Grand Canal grass bank. 🏃‍♂🏃‍♀

The SVT junior parkrun challenge shield will be awarded four times annually. 🏆
It will be competed for by any primary schools in the area that are interested, and the format could not be easier. 😄

The shield competition for the four events will vary between participation and performance: for a “participation” event the school children just need to participate, and for a “performance” event the school children must run the course within a particular time.
🏫 For your school, it is also very simple. Encourage the children to get registered on the parkrun database, using their primary school name as their “running club”. Notify the students well in advance when the competition is coming up, and encourage as many as possible from your school to attend.

OUR FIRST EVENT TAKES PLACE ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17TH.

It will be “participation” based – the primary school with the most participants will win the shield. In the event of a tie, the placing of their last finisher will decide the winner.

So, inform the students and their parents, get them to register on www.parkrun.ie – registration is quick, it is simple, and it is FREE! Then get them to Vicarstown for 10:30AM on Sunday, February 17th.

IF NEEDED, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED CLEARLY IN THE FACEBOOK EVENT DISCUSSION SECTION.
