The following are some instructions from the Dublin Athletics Board for athletes/parents/coaches.

All athletes to show fairness and respect to their fellow athletes at all times.

The start – whilst accepting there can be jostling for position, it is not acceptable to deliberately push, pull or trip another athlete nor is this type of behaviour acceptable during the course of a race.

Run up and finish area – An athlete should not deliberately impede or block the progress of another athlete, doing so could risk disqualification

Parents/Coaches – should respect and obey the instructions of our voluntary stewards/marshalls whom without we would not have competition and whilst you should encourage and support competitors you should not run alongside them during the course of their event as this could lead to disqualification. 

Best of luck to all our athletes!
