Athletics Ireland is launching a national campaign that aims to keep people active over the coming weeks and months. Athletics Ireland will be offering up free tips and advice to help you stay active while adhering to the HSE guidelines with respect to COVID-19.
Exercise helps with not only your physical health but also your mental health, and the simplicity and accessibly of running makes it the perfect form of exercise to keep you enjoying an active lifestyle. We would urge you to stay home and try some of the home drills and exercises listed below.
There will also be a number of challenges uploaded to our new Athletics Ireland Facebook Group to keep you motivated so make sure to join.
We look forward to supporting you on the journey and make sure to tag Athletics Ireland and use the hashtags

Dear Club Secretary,
Following the latest announcement from our Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar yesterday announcing All organised indoor and outdoor events of any size are not to take place.
The effect of this government decision means that no Athletics Ireland Provinces, County Boards, Clubs or affiliates can operate in any capacity. As such no insurance covers of Athletics Ireland for Provinces, County Boards, Clubs and individuals are operational during this period.
The AAI personal accident covers any registered member who is injured as a result of an accident at an official club event or during official club training. This policy does not cover individuals training at their own discretion.
The government directive has now shut down all club activity hence the withdrawal of our club personal accident cover.
During these unprecedented times we need to act responsibly and we appreciate your cooperation in temporarily closing all club activity.
Chief Executive Officer

Some of our juvenile athletes were competing at Day 3 & 4 of the Leinster Championships in the National Indoor Arena Abbottstown over the weekend. On Saturday Ciaran Herdman competed brilliantly in the Junior age level, coming first in the High Jump, second in the Triple Jump and seventh in the Long jump. On Sunday Ciaran added to his medal haul with a silver medal in the U18 High Jump and gold in the U18 Triple Jump. Also on Sunday Amy Callaghan, Niamh Quinn and Amy Bellew all threw very well in the U17 shot putt event. Amy Callaghan threw a pb of 11.97m to win gold while Niamh also threw a pb of 10. 68m to win the bronze medal. Amy Callaghan also jumped very well in the U17 high jump coming fourth. Well done to them all.
