Athletics Ireland Statement on the Belfast Irish Milers Meet
Athletics Ireland only became aware of the Belfast Irish Milers Meet application for a European Athletics permit recently. European Athletics withdrew their permit for this Meet due to administrative concerns.
We thank Athletics Northern Ireland for supporting the UKA Level 2 permit for this Belfast event which will allow the recognition of any standards achieved by athletes at the Meet.
We are delighted to have secured a European Athletics permit for the upcoming AAI Games on the 12th & 13th June that will offer Category D ranking points for all those competing.
Note that we are yet to receive Government guidelines on numbers allowed to participate in this Meet.
