Portlaoise Athletic Club has its home in Harpers Lane, Portlaoise beside the Portlaoise Community school (see map here)
We are a very busy club, competing during the winter in cross country and road events, and from April we are involved in Track and Field athletics. The indoor season begins in January and involves many of our younger athletes but also our senior throwers, sprinters and middle distance athletes.
Registering with an athletic club allows you to compete in Country cross country, road and track races with Portlaoise A.C. as an individual and as part of a team. There are four senior county cross country events each year, 4 road county races and county track races. All these events are also available to younger athletes in the club.
Membership runs from January to December.
Training times for juvenilles are on a Tuesday and Thursday night with senior Athletics meeting Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (see training schedule).
The club relies heavily on volunteers to help out throughout the year in all aspects of running a club so we would love to welcome all new members.
We run a Couch to 5k programme every year in January so it is the perfect opportunity to try out a new activity.
