Keep Ireland Moving
Walk, Run, or Jog, but #KeepYourDistance
Athletics Ireland is launching a national campaign that aims to keep people active over the coming weeks and months. Athletics Ireland will be offering up free tips and advice to help you stay active while adhering to the HSE guidelines with respect to COVID-19.
Exercise helps with not only your physical health but also your mental health, and the simplicity and accessibly of running makes it the perfect form of exercise to keep you enjoying an active lifestyle. We would urge you to stay home and try some of the home drills and exercises listed below.
Please ensure that we all continue to follow the guidelines set out by the HSE in relation to exercise. These guidelines state "You can still go outside to exercise briefly by yourself, but only within 5 kilometres of your home, keeping 2 metres distance from other people." Full details can be found at www.hse.ie.
There will also be a number of challenges uploaded to our new Athletics Ireland Facebook Group to keep you motivated so make sure to join.
