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. And don’t worry if you’re just starting out, over 300,000 people in Ireland run on a regular basis and we'll be linking this community together via a series of virtual runs.

Click HERE to join our virtual running community. We encourage you to post your runs, training, exercises, positivity and messages of support on this page.

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.

We look forward to supporting you on the journey and make sure to tag Athletics Ireland and use the hashtags
