TEAM IRELAND TOKYO ATHLETICS ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Seven Team Ireland athletes selected to compete in Sapporo at Tokyo 2020

Team Ireland has officially selected seven athletes to compete across the Marathon and 50km Race Walk events in Sapporo at the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer. An experienced team of five marathon runners and two race walkers will compete across four days in Sapporo from the 5 – 8 August.

In the Marathon, Fionnuala McCormack is heading into her fourth Olympic Games, she first became an Olympian in Beijing 2008. She is joined by Aoife Cooke in the Women’s Marathon, and Paul Pollock, Kevin Seaward and Stephen Scullion will compete in the Men’s Marathon. Brendan Boyce is approaching his third Games, and was the first Irish athlete across all sports to achieve an Olympic qualification time, he will compete in the Men’s 50km Race Walk alongside Rio Olympian Alex Wright.

These events were originally scheduled to take place in Tokyo but were moved to the more northern city of Sapporo where the temperatures were considered more suited to endurance events. Sapporo additionally holds a special place in Olympic history, having hosted the Winter Olympics in 1972. Olympic Federation of Ireland Sports Director Martin Burke will be heading up the Irish delegation in Sapporo.

This is the first of two Team Ireland Tokyo announcements for athletics, with the second one scheduled for early July, and which will name the track and field athletes who will be selected, as well as athletes in the 20km Race Walk. Team Ireland has currently 10 officially selected athletes, and at the moment 79 athletes have achieved qualification spots, with many more waiting on final ranking confirmation.

Speaking about his selection Marathon runner Paul Pollock said,

“It is a real honour to compete in the Tokyo Olympics for Team Ireland. Having already competed at the 2016 Rio Olympics, I am looking forward to pulling on the Irish vest once more. I'm excited about being based in the city of Sapporo, which is that extra bit special for having already hosted the 1972 Winter Olympics, and I'm looking forward to the welcome that we will get. It will be a very different experience of course, without any spectators, but we are there to perform to our best and I am extremely proud to be part of the team.”

Olympic Federation of Ireland Chef de Mission for Tokyo 2020, Tricia Heberle said,

“We are delighted to officially announce a strong and experienced Athletics Marathon and 50km Race Walk team. Between the team they have eight Olympic Games experiences already, with Fionnuala McCormack heading into her fourth Games. This is an exciting team, with an immense amount of talent and resilience, and we are looking forward to seeing them compete this summer.”

Paul McNamara, Athletics Ireland Performance Director said,

“This has been a unique, protracted and challenging qualifying campaign for these athletes with postponement, change of venue, limited qualifying opportunities, and the vagaries of the new qualification system, but these athletes have risen to the many challenges and now are primed to put in their very best performance on the greatest of stages”.

Rio Olympian Paul Pollock will be available for interview – please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange.

Team announcements will come more frequently over the coming weeks, with the final team announcement scheduled for the beginning of July. The Olympic Games in Tokyo will run from the 23rd July to 8th August 2021.

Spectators are NOT permitted - Only Athletes and Event Officials may enter the facility, and total numbers on site at any one time will be limited to 100 maximum

Instructions from MTU Meet Organisters

Thank you for entering the ‘MTU Athletics Track Night’. In these unusual times we are implementing the following protocols in order to keep you and our officials as safe as possible.

 

Step 1: Checking in

You will be asked to fill out an online COVID questionnaire where you will self-declare your fitness to attend the track meet. This questionnaire will also act as an acknowledgement that you are checking in for your event(s). This questionnaire will be made available at 9am on Tuesday June 8th and will be available until 3pm on Tuesday June 8th.


Traditionally there is a certain amount of wiggle room on the day of an event in terms of checking in late and swapping between races etc. Unfortunately, we will not be in a position to facilitate such changes for this meet. This inflexibility is to minimise the interactions between our officials at the meet and to allow officials to print out the required documentation in their own homes prior to arriving at the meet.


So in short…….complete the check in/COVID questionnaire in good time!

 

Step 2: Arrival and passage through the stadium

 

mtu track meet zones june 8th 2021


Again, for your safety and ours, it is our intention to minimise the amount of time that you spend in the facility. To that end you will all arrive at the facility and transfer to the warm-up zone at times that are specific to your event in line with the table below:

 

mtu track meet schedule june 8th 2021

 

 

Your passage through the facility is detailed below

mtu track meet zones june 8th 2021

 

Zone 1: Entry to the stadium

While waiting to gain entry to the facility please observe social distancing.

Athletes should report here no later than 30 minutes prior to their race time. This ensures a steady flow of athletes through the facility. Upon entry to the facility, athletes should wait in the ‘top bend’ area until called to enter the pre-race warmup area via the track entry point [2]. While waiting to enter the pre-race warm up area  athletes should ensure social distancing is observed.

Race number pick up will also be in zone 1. All numbers will have pins attached.

Zone 2

Athletes will be allowed to enter the pre-race warm up area via the gate adjacent to the 100m start 30 minutes before their race time. Please be vigilant crossing the track and follow the instructions from the officials located at the crossing point. Note there is a Discus event on the night so the infield grass area is off limits for warm up purposes.

Zone 3

Athletes will remain in the pre-race warm-up area until they are called to their race start. Athletes should leave their warm-up gear in the finish line area (mile/400m) or beside the ‘track shed’ (5k) where it can be collected after your race. No ‘back tracking is allowed’. If you have forgotten something, ask an official to help you out. You will be called to your race start from the pre-race warmup area.

You may carry out strides etc on the back straight/top bend of the track but please be vigilant and don’t impeded your fellow athletes during their races.

 

Zone 4

Athletes should vacate the finish area as soon as they can stand up after their race. Please avoid post-race hugs and high fives etc. as you celebrate your excellent achievements!

Zone 5

Athletes in the mile and 400m events should gather their gear from the finish line area and vacate the track by the gate adjacent to the 1500m start line. Athletes in the 5000m should vacate the track by the gate adjacent to the 1500m start line and pick up their warmup gear by the ‘track shed’ building as they exit the facility.

Zone 6

Resist the urge to hang around and watch the next race. We are delighted to have you on the track but we need you to leave the facility as soon as you are able!


The timetable is designed to allow for the distance race participants to warm up (not warm down) on the infield prior to their races. Competitors in the Discus will begin warming up at 7:30pm and, from that point onwards, the infield will be off limits to all athletes.


Athletes in the 100m and 400m can warm up on the track but will need to make sure that they don’t get in the way of races!

Cork City Sports Athletics Person of the Month - April 2021 - Award Citation

Aoife Cooke (Eagle AC) is the April recipient of the Cork City Sports Athlete of the Month.

After a prolonged spell without competition, due lockdown restrictions, Aoife fulfilled a lifetime's ambition by securing a qualification standard for the Olympic Marathon to be held in Japan this summer.

Her time at the Cheshire Elite Marathon in the UK was 2:28:36 which was a comforable one minute inside the Olympic Marathon qualifying time, and moves her to 4th in the All-Time list of Irish Marathon performances

 

Excerpt from Article by John Walshe

"The story of that brilliant performance at the Cheshire Marathon in April can be seen below and speaking at the presentation at The River Lee Hotel, the Eagle AC athlete expressed her delight at receiving the monthly award for the third time: “I received one in 2016, when I won the All-Ireland novice cross-country, and then I got it in October 2019, when I became the National Marathon champion.

“But I suppose the pinnacle of the sports of athletics is to have made it to the Olympics, so that’s a huge deal for me. The last year or year-and-a-half everything was uncertain, with all the races cancelled and everything like that, so it feels like it was a long time coming, so it was a huge relief, and a huge joy, when I crossed the finish line and got the time.”

After a few weeks of recovery, Aoife is now back in full training and leaves, on Sunday next, for an extended period of preparation in the USA at Kaysville, Utah. “It’s at 7,000 feet and my coach coaches a number of people over there, so I’ll link in with them. I won’t race between now and the Olympics, I’ll just focus on the training.”

No doubt it will be good for Aoife to get away, as since her Cheshire triumph, she has been much in demand. “Yes, we celebrated to the extent that we are allowed to at the moment, I went back home to Youghal and did my quarantine there, and they had a little cake and a few celebratory drinks,” she explained.

Apart from a Sport Ireland grant, Aoife is entirely self-funded, so she was delighted to receive some recent sponsorship. “Coming up to Cheshire I suppose I was by myself, but now I’m receiving a nice bit of help from the people of Cork and the people of Youghal.

“The Youghal Business Alliance gave me a little bit of funding, as did Youghal Credit Union, and then Ger Flanagan, who used to coach me in Youghal, is helping me out as well, as I’m now an ambassador for Boardwalk Coffee.”

Niamh McCarthy Throws 31.03m for F41 Discus Gold

Niamh McCarthy took F41 discus gold, when she decimated the field at the World Para Athletics European Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland today.

Niamh started with a throw of 10.45m, which left her in 5th place, and outside the medal positions - her throw was taken before video coverage of the event started.  She 'got into gear' with her second throw of 27.96m, which, as it turned out, would have been good enought to win the championship. However she then threw 30.03m wit her third throw - her best of teh Championships, and 28.37m for her penultimate throw. Any of her final three valid throws would have been sufficient to take Gold, as Silver Medalist, Renata Sliwinska, Poland, threw 24.77m - a World Record for her, as she is in the F40 category.

Note from County Board Registrar John Copithorne regarding Insurance and Registrations

 

All clubs shold immediately ensure that all their active 

 

a) Coaches and officials

b) Athletes

c) Committee Members

 

are all Registered for 2021

It is critical, particularly for insurance purposes, that everyone is registered.

*  *  *  *  *  *  *

 Now that athletics has started to reopen, registrations can be easy to overlook, and a few clubs appear to have resumed activity without registering some of their members, and, in a few cases, significant numbers. This should be addressed as a matter of urgency

Clubs are reminded that UNREGISTERED athletes are NOT covered by Athletics Irelands insurance, for ANY purpose, training or competition, leaving those athletes, officials, coaches and clubs in a precarious legal position.

Any club having difficulties registering their athletes should contact Cork Athletics Registrar, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 0861713500

Webmaster's Note: I have been 'Banging on' for ages about the Bandon Rugby Club case. The Irish Times reported on the case in April 1997.  Twenty four years later, the judgement is still as relevant, and stands out as a warning to the consequences of not registering members of an organisation.  A further related Irish Times article advises clubs to ensure that members are registered.

Post-Race

Athletes should vacate the finish area as soon as they can stand up after their race. Please avoid post-race hugs and high fives etc. as you celebrate your excellent achievements!

Excerpt from Article by John Walshe

CORK CITY SPORTS ATHLETICS PERSON OF THE MONTH AWARD

A multi-winner of the award in the past, Leevale’s Lizzie Lee is the Cork City Sports Athletics Person of the Month for May.

At a specially arranged Micro Meet for Irish elite athletes at the MTU track, Lizzie – in her only her second 10,000m on the track – covered the 25 laps in a time of 34:14.26. This gave her selection as the sole female Irish representative over the same distance for the European Cup in Birmingham.

“I honestly thought my days of awards and international vests were over, so I’m absolutely delighted,” said Lizzie at the award ceremony in The River Lee Hotel. “I must put my hand up in the air to Athletics Ireland and to the likes of Ian O’Sullivan in MTU, Donal Murnane, Ina Killeen and Liam O’Brien for putting the meet on. When you have the likes of that behind you in Cork, it’s something you don’t get anywhere else, and so it all fell together.”

The object was to run 82-second laps and this she did in the lashing rain, her finishing time of 34:12.26 well inside the standard and giving her 25 seconds to spare over Meghan Ryan of DSD. Lizzie then went to Birmingham where she recorded a personal best of 33:04.50 for 17th place in the star-studded field. “It was amazing pulling on that Irish singlet again. I’m now going on 11 years as a senior international athlete, I’m 41 with three small kids and I’m standing on start line with the best in Europe.”

One thing that Lizzie appreciated during the pandemic was the pure joy and love of running. “With three small kids and a husband working from home, to get out and run for 10 miles first thing in the morning just kind of saved my head for the day.”

Six years ago, Lizzie captained the Irish team to the bronze medals at the European Cross-Country and with the re-scheduled championships set for Santry this December, it’s something that’s already in her sights. “I would run over hot coals in the National C-C to make the team, Leevale women will be going for four-in-a-row to win the club title and that puts fire in my belly.

“But the competition to get on that [Irish] team is going to be insane, they’ll all going to want to run in Dublin but that will be the head-down goal and we’ll see what happens.”

Lizzie Lee, Leevale AC,  ran a 33:04.50 PB, for 17th place at this evening's European 10,000m Cup Women's 'A' race, at Birmingham University, UK.  The event combined as the European 10,000m Cup, the British 10,000m Championship, Commonwealth Games Qualifier, and for most of the field, an Olympic qualifier, with 31:25 being the target there.

Lizzie Lee was Ireland's sole women's representative in the race, however her clubmate Michelle Finn was one of the two Pacers, leading the field through 3k

Israeli athlete Teferi set the early pace and was only overtaken in the finishing straight, when Eilish McColgan came through to pip her by the narrowest of margins, 31:19.21, to Teferi's 31:19:25. Teferi held off Briton Jessica Judd, third, who also PB'd on 31:20.84, with all three inside the Olympic qualifying time.

Cork Athletics Event Permit Applications - June 2021

Athletics Ireland Event Licences/Permit Applications 2021

June 3rd 2021

 Athletics Ireland Permit Application Image

Athletics Ireland Race Permit Circular, May 28th 2021

"Athletics Ireland is now accepting permit applications from June 7th. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to competitive events, whether its Track & Field, Road Races or Cross Country.

Our goal is to keep everyone safe as we re-open and be mindful of others around us. To assist Athletics Ireland in planning during the initial return to competition, a starting number of approximately 100 people on site at any one time is recommended. Note you may have more than one wave of 100 to assist in the management of your event.

This number would include participants, officials, management and essential support personnel.

Such activity will take place under strict protocol and without spectators.

When planning events, Event Organisers should also seek to engage with other relevant stakeholders such as Medical Services, Gardaí and the Local Authorities.

 

Link for permit applications


We are entering a new year and, at this point in time, permit applications are steadily coming in.  Several events have even been granted permits for 2021."

NB: The Permit Application should NOT be sent directly to Athletics Ireland. If it is sent directly to Athletics Ireland, it will be returned to Cork Athletics County Board, without consideration.

Completed application form must be sent to Cork Athletics County Secretary, Anne Murray, Dromina, Charleville, Co. Cork


 

 

Permits in County Cork - Important Notes

Road Races

A Permit will NOT be granted if there is already a permit in place for another event, on the same day, and within 30km of the venue OR Within 36 Hours of the event and within 30km. Please check Cork Athletics Events Calendar to ensure that there is not a clashing event already in the system.

Open Sports Meets

A permit will not be granted for an Open Sports within the County, if there is already a permit for another Open Sports within 3 days of the proposed event

 

Closed Dates

Permits will NOT be granted for events on the following dates:


March 17th - This clashes with Cork Athletics Road Championships


June Bank Holiday Sunday - This clashes with the Cork City Marathon, in which Cork Athletics County Board is an active partner, managing 60% of the course and providing significant stewarding personnel


September 19th (2021) - This Clashes with Cork Athletics' Echo Women's Mini-Marathon, a significant fund-raiser for the organisation

 

Completed Permit Application Forms

The completed application form must be sent to Cork Athletics County Secretary, Anne Murray, Dromina, Charleville, Co. Cork

NB: A frequent error has been where the completed application form has been sent directly to Athletics Ireland Head Office.  This results, at best, in delay to approval of the permit, as it must first be returned to Cork Athletics, for local approval.  In some cases, sending directly to Dublin has resulted in significant delay in approval of the application.


NB: A representative of the Sponsoring Club MUST be present at the Board Meeting, to propose the approval of the Permit Application, otherwise the application is unlikely to be approved.

Since the introduction of the Cork Athletics Online Fixtures Calendar, many clubs and organisations have taken advantage of early application, with resulting calendar listing, of their event.

 

Athletics Ireland Event Licensing

The Athletics Ireland Road Race Licence is a system whereby the governing body helps to ensure that the essential organisational requirements for a road race are in place, to ensure the safety of all concerned, and consistency in race organisation standards across the country.

 


Steps in Applying for a License

    Write to the local Garda Siochana, informing them that a race is being planned, and requesting that they nominate a liaision Garda member. The name of the relevant contact at your local Garda station will be required when applying for a Licence.
   

Contact your Local Athletics Club at the earliest opportunity, as they have vast local knowledge of licensed races in the area, and will guide the organising committee on a choice of date(s) to avoid clashes with other races in the area.
   

Applications are then submitted by the Local Club, to Cork Athletics County board, for approval. It is recommended that Applications be submitted to the County Board ideally six months in advance of the proposed event. This is to ensure that there is sufficient time to resolve any problems; dates etc.
   

Applications should include
        An Licence Application Form:

 

Athletics Ireland Course Measurement Form completed by an AAI approved course measurer
A copy of the proposed entry form
A map of the course showing course marshals locations and mile/km points
Information/race instructions that is to be given/forwarded to entrants
Medical Plan
The Appropriate Permit/Licence Application Fee

On approval by Cork Athletics County Board, the Application will be submitted to Deirdre Marley, 19 Northwood Court, Northwood Business Campus, Dublin 9, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 018869933


NB: The Permit Application should NOT be sent directly to Athletics Ireland. If it is sent directly to Athletics Ireland, it will be returned to Cork Athletics County Board, without considerattion



Once your Licence has been approved, you will receive a unique Licence Number, which should appear on all Race Literature, along with a logo which certifies AAI Approval.


No event promotions should take place prior to a Licence being approved and granted, to avoid disappointment, should your event permit not be approved for your chosen date..

 

Insurance

For Athletics Ireland Club events only, Athletics Ireland Insurance will provide insurance cover for the race, on issue of the Licence.
No Athletics Ireland Insurance is provided for Charitable, Non-Athletics Ireland Clubs and Organisations, Commercial or International events. These categories of event applications CANNOT be covered by Athletics Ireland Insurance, and Proof of insurance is required


Risk Assessment

    A mandatory part of the process is a requirement to make a risk assessment.
    The organising committee is responsible for the risk assessment.
    The County Board and Athletics Ireland do not require a copy of the risk assessment; however, a copy should be available on the day of the race, for this to be checked by the Race Referee.

It is also recommended that a “Cancellation Procedure” document is prepared and displayed at Race HQ (An example document )


Permit Applications must be accompanied by a Medical Plan.  In addition, each application should be accompanied by a measurement certificate (Measurement Certificates are valid for five years, unless the measured course has been changed).

News - Echo Mini-Marathon 2021

Sunday September 19th 2021

IMG 7354 minStart of Cork Women's Mini-Marathon 2015


This year's Mini-Marathon will again be a virtual event!  Event organisers, Cork Athletics County Board, are committed to ensuring that Cork's women, who walk and and run the event every year, and, in doing so, raise over €1M for their chosen charities, will not miss out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, again, the focus will be on facilitating participants fund raise for charity, at a time when charities have been badly hit by cancelled collections and flag days, along with closure of their charity shops, and many other fundraising activities.

The Echo Cork Womens Mini-Marathon Launch

Register for Echo Virtual Women's Mini-Marathon 2021

 

 

This year we are celebrating the 40th Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event will be a virtual one again this year, and we are hoping that as many people as possible will take part to help support the many Cork charities who rely on the event’s participants to raise much-needed funds every year.

Cork Athletics is still proceeding with plans for a live 'In-Person' event on the Marina, and a decision will be made on this in the coming month or so, as there are many new 'hurdles' to be overcome due to Covid-19, and much will depend on Government and Sport Ireland advice/regulations

 

Statement from Cork Athletics

At present, it isn't clear if an 'In-Person' live event will be able to go ahead this year, so we have opened entries for our Virtual Women's Mini-Marathon.

A decision on the live event will be made as early as possible, but if you register for the virtual event, you will have the option of changing to an 'In-person' entry if you wish.

The Virtual Event will go ahead even if a live event becomes possible. The Early-Bird offer of €5 entry discount will close if/when entry opens for the 'In-Person' event, with Early-Bird entrants retaining their €5 discount on the live event

The Virtual Event will still run alongside the Live Event

 

About the Event

The event is 6km and you can complete that however you want either by walking, running or jogging in your back garden!

If the live race cannot go ahead again this year, we encourage you to join us virtually in the spirit of the event on what would have been race day on September 19th, and complete your 6k, (Please  adhere to all Government guidelines regarding public safety and social distancing that are in place at the time that you are doing your 6K).

The results portal will be open from September 16th, but if you can’t complete your 6K on September 19th, you can also do it anytime between September 16th and September 26th, then upload your results to download your certificate of completion

Charities

The Charities are massive beneficiaries from the funds you all raise each year, but as you will be aware, they have have been hit very badly during Covid, with flag-days and fundraisers of all sorts being cancelled. Cork Athletics urges all participants to 'row in' behind their own chosen charity when doing the Echo Cork Women's Mini-Marathon.

Charity Fundraising

To fund raise for your own chosen charity, pleas Register for the Echo Cork Women's Mini-Marathon, then contact your selected Charity directly, for their fund-raising pack
