Athletics Ireland have issued the below update regarding the proposed National Track and Field championships scheduled for this month.
The plans for these competitions were dependant on the government moving to phase four in the roadmap to re-open the country, which allows for gatherings of 500 people.
“The government extension of the restriction of 200 people only attending any outdoor event is disappointing for us all in Athletics Ireland. However, this decision was made in the best interests of the health of the nation as we all strive to contain the Covid19 virus outbreak.
Athletics Ireland are currently reviewing several logistical options in regard to upcoming competitions and we will revert to all stakeholders later this week once those decisions are finalised.
We thank you all for your patience at this difficult time.”
