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.
While we may no longer be in strict lockdown mode it looks likely that we will be keeping our distance and wearing a mask for a while yet. The good news, however, is that events have started to creep back onto the athletics fixtures calendar (see Fixtures page). See latest COVID updates from AI.
Mental Health & Wellbeing In Athletics
The past year and a bit 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).
