Athletics Leinster have updated our indoor competitions booklet to reflect current guidelines. A copy of this is available here

The main changes are as follows:

  1. Given capacity restrictions, our programmes on the four days may start earlier & finish later than normal. Additionally, a number of field events may be held outdoors.
  2. While no Covid-19 certs will be required for U18s, those aged 18 and above will require Covid certification. A child u18 and younger may be accompanied by one parent/guardian. Protocols will be put in place around this and communciated to you in the coming weeks.
  3. Only 3 athletes per event in the U12-U19 age groups will qualify for All-Irelands from each region. An athlete must qualify from their region to compete. There will be no open entry for juveniles to nationals. This is a National Rule for the 2022 Indoor Season.

 

We expect to be open for registration early next week.

We thank you for your continued support.

  • To avoid congestion please try to arrive no sooner than 1 hour before your event, which will be plenty of time to collect your number and warm up;
  • There will be races for boys and girls under 9 years of age - no fee, simply go to the start line when called (11.10am for girls, 11.20am for boys), and there will be medals for the top 12 finishers in each race;
