Meet and Train groups are the ideal place for the recreational runner/walker to take the first steps towards better health and fitness.
Trained leaders can help you develop your fitness in a fun sociable environment. You can start at any age, no previous experience is required and you can choose a pace to your level of fitness. Meet and Train groups are suitable for beginners through to regular runners, and the emphasis is on meeting with people of a similar ability on a regular basis to walk or run.
Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership (KRSP) are encouraging communities to establish Meet and Train groups in their localities.
If you have a suitable venue and are interested in establishing a Meet and Train group, please contact KRSP at 056 7794990 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org .

This programme aims to provide women with activities in their own communities and encourage lifelong participation in sport and exercise. Physical Activity Sessions (Circuit Training/Yoga/Pilates/Dance) can be offered to the community at a minimal cost and the community can also avail of workshops / seminars on healthy lifestyle choices. The programme also aims to provide Meet & Train opportunities to these groups and other groups during the spring / summer months.
KRSP has been working with women in the travelling community in Kilkenny to increase physical activity levels and promote healthy lifestyles.
