  • A number of our athletes also compete against other home nations as Athletics is a BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) sport! For more information on the BUCS Athletics, click HERE.

  • Athletics was one of the sports included in the first modern Olympic Games, in 1896, and has appeared in every summer Olympics since. The founder, Pierre to Coubertin, had been inspired by watching some rural games in Britain – similar to the Highland Games that take place throughout Scotland every summer.

  • Each season, our Athletics National Squad has the opportunity to compete as a team against Irish students in an international match, with hosting duties rotating between nations each season.
