Athenry AC athletes wishing to compete in these championships should send an email to iain@aacjuvenile.com BEFORE Friday 14th February so you can be registered for the competition.  It will not be possible to register any athletes after this time.  All athletes will need to be registered with Athletics Ireland before we will accept your entry to the competition so if you have not paid your club registration for 2020 you need to do this as soon as possible.

These championships serve as the qualifiers for the All Ireland T&F Championships which will be held on 28th/29th March and 4th April in AIT.  The top 4 from each event (top 3 from 600m and 800m) will be put forward for the National finals.

Athenry AC coaching staff reserve the right to refuse to enter an athlete if we feel they are not technically competent in the particular event (this for safety of athlete)
