Sprint Training Weekend in Belfast

Sprint Training Weekend – Belfast Saturday 18th / Sunday 19th August

A date for your diary this summer! Olivia and I are co-ordinating this weekend and we’d love to get a great turnout from the squad. Plans are afoot, and there will be more details nearer the time. For the moment you should plan to arrive on Friday evening in time for an early start on Saturday morning. We will have morning and afternoon sessions on the Saturday, social and fundraiser on the Saturday evening, and morning sessions on the Sunday, followed by a sprint finale and early afternoon farewell BBQ. We have great sprint terrain and planners in the Belfast area, including WRE standard – it’s a weekend not to be missed. You can expect physical & navigation training – tests, coaching and presentations from the experts – not forgetting the social side. Floor space accommodation is available if you get your name down quickly enough (if you’re very quick you might even get a bed). If you want to go more up-market, we can recommend accommodation in the area. We have ideas aplenty at the moment – however we are open to suggestion. If there are any particular techniques you would like to work on, or good training sessions you can recommend, please get in touch. The weekend is open to all and is aimed primariliy at elite standard. So, who’s in? Susan & Olivia
You can contact Susan ( or follow the event on the Irish Squad Facebook page for more information and updates.
