Athletics NI Virtual Primary Schools Run

Pupils run 1k A Day from Monday 3rd May to Friday 7th May. You can run on any surface, and at any time that suits you. Children can sign up individually, or can be signed up as a class team, to help motivate their classmates.

The benefits of the Virtual Primary Schools Run are:

  • It is free to enter
  • Needs no equipment
  • Can be completed on any surface
  • Helps keep children active
  • Is open to all children currently in P5-P7

Once pupils have completed their 1k A Day, teachers or parents will submit their names to be entered into a prize draw to win some Athletics NI goodies! All pupils will receive a special Virtual Primary Schools Run certificate upon completion.

Online Entry

Entries will open on Monday 15th March

We would ask that all pupils, staff and parents involved keep to the Public Health Agency advice and follow the social distancing guidelines to ensure safety for all. For the latest Athletics NI Coronavirus Advice, please see here
