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.
Wexford Individual and Team success at All-Ireland Cross Country
Young Wexford athletes won three individual and four provincial team medals at the Irish Life Health National Cross Country Championships held at the National Sports Campus, Abbottstown on Nov 25. The juvenile events (uneven ages) served as the undercard for the Junior and Senior events. Read all about it. Next Saturday the National Novice and Juvenile (Uneven Ages) Cross Country Championships take place at Navan Racecourse. This is the same testing course that was used in October for the Leinster Even Ages and Junior Cross Country. Wexford will be hoping for strong underage individual and team performances. Ger Forde is our best prospect in the Men’s Novice race.

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).
