Clonliffe Harriers are delighted with the announcement by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in the last few minutes of the further easing of Covid – 19 restrictions and the continued acceleration of the road to recovery. In particular we welcome the announcement of an almost full return of sport from Monday, June 29. Almost as exciting is the opening of hairdressers and barbers!
Clonliffe Harriers of course await further guidance from our governing body Athletics Ireland on the continued return to training and normal club activity. Hopefully this will permit the return of the U/13 athletes to training in Santry all of whom together with their long suffering parents have been waiting patiently! At present these athletes cannot return but hopefully on June 29. This website will be updated as soon as we have further news on that front.
Assuming all continues to go well it certainly looks like there will be a late track and field season for athletes. The club continues to work on the planned return of club races and our own club track and field championships.Hopefully early in July we can have a club race by way of a trial and then in mid/late July we can look to have our club junior/senior track and field championships. This time may also see a couple of the Dublin Athletics Graded Meets. August 8 and 9th will see Athletics Leinster hold the Leinster junior/senior/masters track and field championships. Leading on to August 22nd and 23rd and the national senior track and field championships at Morton Stadium.
Currently we do not have any confirmation of the position concerning juvenile Championships (again we will update as soon as possible)
