Tullamore Harriers Club Report 8th February 2021

At this time of year with limited daylight hours, lots of our members and other athletes are running in the dark. Can we please remind all to be aware of the dangers of running in the dark. **The most dangerous thing about running in the dark is not what YOU do…..but what the people around you do**.
 If you are not visible, you are not safe. 
It is essential that you are visible to other people, particularly motorists. Respect that motorists must be able to see you in order to avoid you.
Please maximize reflective gear. A yellow jacket is not going to make you visible. You must have some reflective material on your top. Hi Vizability Clothing is exactly that —– you are visible to oncoming traffic and other road users. 
Handheld flash lights or headlamps have dual purpose – they light up your way and also alert the other road users.
Avoid using earphones . Your concentration may be reduced if using earphones. 
Run against the traffic – you can see what the motorist is doing .
Don’t leave it too late to light up. Safe running everyone.

Tullamore Harriers 2021 AGM provisionally set for 8th February 2021 will be postponed due to the ongoing covid restrictions.   The AGM will be rescheduled at the earliest possible date when an in-person meeting of the members can be held.
In the interim the 2020 Committee and Officers have agreed to continue in their roles until such time as the Club can hold the 2021 AGM.  The Acting Committee looks forward to continuing to serve our members and the Club and would like to thank everyone for their continued support during these  challenging times.
The chairman, committee and members of Tullamore Harriers  would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family of David Hutton of Charleville Estate. David was a great friend to the club and a great support to many of the clubs athletes down through the years. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. The club would also like to extend our condolences to Miriam Brady on the death of her father and to Nita McLoughlin on the death of her grandmother.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha
