We are an athletics club based on Main Street, Rathfarnham village (beside Rathfarnham Credit Union) catering for athletes of all ages and abilities. Our athletes take part in a wide variety of events including cross country, track, road and mountain running.

We are all delighted that covid rules and restrictions have been removed. We no longer require adults to register for training sessions. Indoor training activities are permitted to take place.

As recommended by Sports Ireland we are maintaining overarching structures because Covid has not gone away. These include the use of COVID 19 Officers, recommending symptomatic individuals do not participate in or attend sporting activities and the ongoing promotion of good respiratory & hand hygiene along with the wearing a face coverings in relevant settings.

 

UNFORTUNATELY OUR JUVENILE CLUB MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 8 TO 12 YEAR OLDS. WE ARE AT FULL CAPACITY AND CANNOT SAFELY TRAIN AND MANAGE MORE THAN THE PRESENT NUMBERS. WE WILL HAVE LIMITED AVAILABILITY OF PLACES IN JANUARY 2023.
