The 150th edition of the Irish Life Health National Track and Field Championships was launched in Dublin yesterday and is set to continue an illustrious history later this month as the cream of Irish athletics takes to Morton Stadium on June 25th and 26th.

The first national athletics championships were organised in Trinity College Dublin on July 7th 1873 and have been held every year since, making the Irish national championships the longest-running consecutive national senior championships in the world.

“The Championships give us the opportunity to see our athletes competing for national titles and individual honours,” said Athletics Ireland CEO Hamish Adams.

“Days like this are only possible due to the commitment of so many people, and I would like to express our thanks to our sponsor Irish Life Health, President of Athletics Ireland John Cronin, the organising committee, volunteers, officials, and all the Athletics Ireland staff who work hard to make our events a great success.”

This year’s Irish Life Health National Track and Field Championships is the most anticipated championships in years, with a host of Olympians and record-breaking athletes all set to take their place.

The Championships will be streamed live in their entirety on YouTube with RTÉ joining in for live coverage on the second day of competition.

“We are proud to be the Official Sponsor of the 150th edition of the Irish Life Health National Track and Field Championships,” said Andrea Walsh, Marketing Manager for Irish Life Health.

“These championships have provided so many incredible moments over the years and we are delighted to be part of an event which showcases the stars of Irish athletics.”
