About Us

Founded in 1983 in the village of Gowran, our members come from Kilkenny, Carlow, Tipperary, Dublin and beyond. We train to compete in a wide variety of events including track, field, road running, race walking and cross country. We welcome new members who would like to try athletics.

Our Academy is for younger athletes aged between 6 – 8, they learn the principles of athletics through games in a non-competitive environment. They can participate in races through the year.

Our Juvenile squads are for athletes aged between 9 – 18, they train to participate in a broad spectrum of activities – we promote the concept of all round, fitness rather than event specialisation.

Our seniors and masters squads cover all ages from 19 – 70+, we have regular meet and train groups and we encourage participation in team events.
