Love Wexford, Love Athletics!

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.

Last year was a very good year for Athletics Wexford. Our end-of-year report has all the details. Wexford had three athletes and one official honoured at the recent Leinster Athletics Star Awards. Well done to Maeve Hayes, Jack Forde, Peter O’Connor and Clare Doyle.

Wexford’s underage athletes brought the curtain down on 2018 with some fine performances at the All-Ireland Cross Championships in Abbotstown (Nov 25) and Navan (Dec 15).  Expect more of the same in the Schools’ cross country in the weeks and months ahead. We also have indoor action on the way as well as plenty more cross country.

If you are looking for results for Leinster and National Championship events head to the Athletics Ireland page or Athletics Leinster page. Also keep an eye on www.myrunresults.com. Find details of upcoming events on the Fixtures page. Read about the performances of Wexford athletes and general goings-on at our News page.

Athletics Wexford holds its AGM at the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy on Jan 23 (7.30pm). Please come!

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’.

Running really is good for you! We spotted an article entitled 10 Mental Health Benefits of Running on Competitor Running (online).

“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” Dean Karnazes
