Late February early March normally comes with great excitement as after months of training sees our athletes head to Athlone or NIA Indoor Arena to compete in the Athletics Leinster Championships, it’s not to be this year but fingers crossed we won’t have to wait too much longer to get back to what we love to do, here are some memories over the last few years……
To help promote walking/running, Athletics Ireland are collecting short video clips for their social media pages, just make sure you are social distanced etc…So if its getting ready to run / walk, tying laces/putting on reflector/starting watch or a clip of a walker or runner starting off don’t be shy submit your short video today
We are asking all members to try the Walk to #KeepWell Challenge which is an initiative that Athletics Ireland are involved with Sport Ireland as part of the Keep Well Campaign, and we would love you to get involved.
Thomas Röhler (2016 Oly Champ, 2018 Euro Champ) put together a good series of How-To javelin videos., which is a useful resource for athletes and coaches. Via Paul McKee Athletics Ireland.
