Our Athletics team in Merlin College train two mornings per week at 8am before school. It is a great way to start your school day - going for a run with your school mates while keeping fit and healthy. We have students taking part in every schools athletics competition throughout the year. Our team has grown in numbers and gone from strength to strength throughout the years. Our toughest runners are our cross county competitors but we have some very talented track and field athletes among our student body also.

Although our focus is on the social and physical benefits of running, it is great to see some of our pupils compete and win medals at the highest level in schools competitions. Many of our students have joined the two athletics clubs in Galway city - Castlegar A.C. and Galway City Harriers - where they have had a very positive influence on other athletes and training and have also achieved national success.
