COVID-19 crisis and local running events

As the COVID-19 crisis moves from a containment to delay phase, the Government have announced today (12th March 2020) a ban on all indoor gatherings of over 100 people and outdoor events of over 500 people.

In this context, it's highly likely that many running events will be cancelled in the immediate future.

While the immediate ban lasts until until the 29th of March, I find it hard to imagine that events for the next 2-3 months won't be impacted. 

Athletics Ireland released this about their events..."Athletics Ireland is therefore instructing all affiliates to suspend competitions and events with immediate effect". They are also recommending all club training sessions be cancelled at this time.

Irish Mountain Running Association - All IMRA events are cancelled until after the 30th of March.

GAA suspend all matches and training.

Parkruns - All parkruns in Ireland are cancelled until at least the end of March.
