AthleticsNI logo

Athletics Northern Ireland understand the desire for information about the potential competition season for track and field this year, as well as any return to club training prior to that.  

Athletics NI have been working in conjunction with British Athletics and the other Home Countries to provide guidance on how to potentially transition back to activity and a possibly shortened competition season.

Outlined on the link below are the key principles and a potential plan for Track and Field competition during this season, subject to the applicable constraints.

Small group training may start in June and, if that is the case, there will be a number of weeks of training available prior to the first competitions. The below is a ten-week framework.  The dates marked against the week numbers are as an example of what could happen if activity resumed from the week beginning 8th June and competition from week beginning 20th July, noting that all of the dates are subject to change.

See the potential plan on this link.

 Sport Northern Ireland are due to publish their guidance for sport's return to activity after which Athletics Northern Ireland will issue guidance documents for athletes, coaches, clubs and facilities for safe return to athletics.
