European Athletics Promotion Events

We are delighted to announce that, as the Belfast International Track and Field Meeting is a member of the European Athletics Promotion (EAP) circuit, we are able to nominate five athletes per meet of the standard required to compete at other competitions on the EAP circuit.

With our aim of producing world class athletes who will represent Northern Ireland in the Commonwealth Games, Athletics NI intend to support competitive athletes to bridge the gap from domestic or age-group (U20/U23) performances to qualifying for senior international competition.

Athletes that are successful in being nominated to an EAP competition will typically, but not necessarily, receive:

  • Two nights’ accommodation
  • Meals
  • Airport transfers
  • Financial contribution towards an air fare

For full details on the nomination process and the selection standards, please see here.

Expression of Interest

The expression of interest will close on 30th April 2019.
