Welcome to the official Athletics Wexford web site. You will find on our pages information on the county’s clubs, upcoming fixtures, results and general happenings on the Wexford athletics’ scene.
The cross country season is now well underway with a few national medals already in the bag – well done to Striders U14 Boys in the National Relays, to Jim Stafford on his individual Masters Gold and the O50 Men on team Gold. Loads more action coming up in the weeks ahead at provincial and national levels. The indoor season is also in full swing. Well done to Leon Reid of Menapians repeating his double sprint Gold at this year’s National Indoor Championships. Earlier in the year he helped his club to a 2nd place finish in the National Indoor League. Our juvenile athletes had a very productive day in Athlone at the Leinster Indoors with Jack Forde of St Killian’s AC deserving of special mention for his double Gold in High Jump (pb) and Shot. See full results for all Leinster and National Championships at www.myrunresults.com and www.athleticsireland.ie.
The Wexford Athletics Annual Awards Night was held at the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy on Feb 16. One of the social highlights on the county’s athletics calendar it was great to see such a huge turnout. Well done to all award winners.
Congrats to new Athletics Ireland CEO Hamish Adams.
Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
We take the development and promotion of athletics very seriously in these parts. That’s why we have one of the most dynamic athletics communities in the country.
We also pay attention to the big health and social benefits which athletics brings. “Mens sana in corpore sano” as the Romans say! And the good news is that you are never to old, or too young, to start. If you are new to athletics you will find details of the club nearest to you under ‘Clubs’.
