Athletics is Back!

Good evening!

We are finally there. On Monday, Howie announced that not only has Social Distancing been removed but the upper limit on the number of people allowed to congregate has also been scrapped meaning that we can now look to a near full return to Athletics on the Isle of Man!

We have been working closely with the NSC, UKA and IOM Sport to hash out the details which are as follows:

  • From Thursday, full access to the NSC and equipment will be permitted. No booking system or limits apply.
  • Long Jump pits will need to be turned over before and after each use and high jump and pole vault mats need to be wiped down after use.
  • Competition has been approved by IOM Sport however we are still waiting for confirmation from UKA as to what we will be permitted to run, we are hoping to salvage some semblance of a 2020 season for you all.

Please do your bit in keeping the Virus subdued by following increased hand washing and hygiene protocols so that we can continue to enjoy the fruits of the fantastic work of the IOM Govt.

Happy Running, Jumping and Throwing!
