Athletics Ireland has confirmed both Sport Ireland and Government clearance to resume limited club and other athletic activity beginning from next Monday, May 18th.

 

One of the first sports to receive such Sport Ireland and Government endorsement as part of phase one of the Government roadmap in reopening from Covid-19, it will allow all athletes to engage in outdoor sporting and fitness activities, either individually or in very small groups (maximum of four people), where social distancing can be maintained and where there is no contact.

 

A statement from Athletics Ireland confirmed the background to the endorsement from Sport Ireland and the Government, saying: “Athletics is a key strategic sport in improving the health of the nation and the recent study detailing the huge increases in people walking and running in the last two months illustrates the necessity to open our club outdoor facilities.”

 

“Among the key parameters that must be met on Phase 1 of the Government roadmap are: people can engage in outdoor sporting and fitness activities, either individually or in very small groups (maximum four people), where social distancing can be maintained and where there is no contact.

 

Only people living within a 5 km radius of their athletic club can attend to train.”
