The Committee for Blackrock Athletic Club has played a crucial role in promoting athletics and fostering a strong sense of community among its members. With a steadfast commitment to excellence and inclusivity, the committee has worked tirelessly to provide a platform for athletes of all ages and abilities to participate in track and field events, road races, cross-country competitions as well as fun fitness sessions for those not into racing. Their dedication to nurturing talent and promoting healthy lifestyles has had a transformative impact on the club and the wider community.
One of the key achievements of the committee has been the development of comprehensive training programs and coaching support for athletes.

Their emphasis on holistic development has not only produced exceptional athletes but has also instilled discipline, resilience and teamwork in the club’s members.
Furthermore, the committee has been instrumental in organising numerous events and competitions, creating opportunities for athletes to showcase their abilities and compete at different levels. Through their efforts over the years, Blackrock Athletic Club has hosted well-organised races at the club 5 and general open days, attracting participants from surrounding communities. These events not only promote a healthy and active lifestyle but also generate a sense of camaraderie and community spirit among participants and spectators alike.
