Athletics Ireland is pleased to announce provisional details for the 4th meeting of the Endurance Coaches Network (ECN) on Saturday 1st April at Athlone IT. The event program will again focus on giving coaches’ practical information that they can take away and use to help improve their own coaching practice and will be delivered through plenary presentations and breakout sessions. There will be time for question & answers at all sessions also. If you are a club coach, development coach or a performance coach then this event has something to offer you. The (ECN) will bring the coaching community together again to gain & share knowledge and more importantly to network with each other. It will be hosted in the excellent surroundings of Athlone IT and run from 9.30am-5.00pm.

Steve Macklin, Athletics Ireland Coach Education Lead for Endurance said:
"I am really looking forward to ECN 4 as we have another superb line up of speakers and these coaches will share all. It should be a fantastic days sharing and learning and I encourage every endurance coach in Ireland to attend and make that investment in themselves and their athletes. As per the last event we have given more time to the breakout sessions and have also added a 2nd  practical workshop on running mechanics being run by Rene Borg. Our keynote speakers will be announced shortly but we also have some of our own Irish endurance coaches Robert Denmead, Paul McNamara and Henry Kiely/Ann O Mara presenting and sharing all”.
