Meath LSP has teamed up with Athletics Ireland to offer an athletic based activity forAthletics Ireland Small secondary schools. iRunForFun is a 6 week programme that has been designed to encourage engagement in physical activity in secondary schools.

The iRunForFun programme is FREE of charge, comes with a training diary and is suited to all abilities. The diary provides training tips, advice, and there are also articles on goal setting and nutrition.

Each week there is a compulsory session that is outlined in the iRunForFun diary. Each session will take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete and should take place during physical education (PE) class each week for a period of 6 weeks

The training should take place around a fixed loop of approximately 150-250 meters. A basketball court, large hall, or half a GAA/Soccer pitch is perfect for this.

On completion of the 6 weeks, the school will then facilitate a school challenge at a distance suited to those who participated on the training programme for example -1 mile, 3k or 5k.

Schools currently on the programme include:

  • Loreto Secondary School Navan
  • Ashbourne Community School
  • Beaufort College Navan
  • St Ciaran’s Community School Kells
  • Eureka Secondary School Kells
  • Youthreach Kells and Trim
