Welcome to the official Athletics Wexford web site where you will find pretty much everything you need to know about athletics in Wexford. This includes information on the county’s clubs, upcoming fixtures, results and general happenings on the Wexford athletics’ scene.
We may not have conquered Covid just yet but it kind of feels like we are starting to get the measure of it. The T&F season is well underway, albeit starting where it normally finishes: nationals first followed by county and provincial championships. There are Irish teams competing at the European Under 23 Champs and the the Under 20s (both in Tallinn). And, as of now, the Olympics is still going ahead notwithstanding the fact that most Japanese people do not want it taking place at this time, and that there will be no audiences permitted to attend events. We may no longer be in strict lockdown but this bat bug has a bit of life left in it yet.
Mental Health & Wellbeing In Athletics
The past year and a half has been tough for everyone. Not surprising really as none of us has lived through a pandemic before. The mental strain of coping with the changes that the virus has brought to how we live, work, study and play has meant that the business of getting by day-to-day has been severely compromised. Athletics Ireland has put together a resource page signposting support services for mental health and wellbeing.
Keep up to date with general goings-on at the News page.

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).
