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.
Mental Health & Wellbeing In Athletics
The past year has been a tough one for everyone. Not surprising 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.
Not much happening on the Fixtures page right now. Let’s hope we get back on track sometime in the months ahead.
Keep up to date with general goings-on at the News page.
Athletics Ireland Child Safety Statement
Athletics Wexford has adopted the Athletics Ireland Child Safeguarding Statement.
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).
