Thomas Barr to headline Le Chéile International 2017

Entries have now opened for this year’s Le Chéile International in Leixlip on Saturday 15th July, which will feature Irish Athlete of the Year and Olympic Finalist, Thomas Barr.

The meet will once again cater for all athletes across a full range of events, from 100m to 3000m on the track, and the Long Jump and Shot Putt in the field. Entries have now opened through the Irish Milers Club website, and we advise that you enter early to avoid disappointment, as we anticipate events will fill up fast. To enter, please follow this link and scroll to the bottom of the page:


World University Games Champion, Barr, will contest the NUI Maynooth Men’s 400m and will face stiff opposition from reigning World Indoor Champion in the 4x400m, Chris Giesting (US). Giesting boasts a personal best of 45.53 and will ensure that Barr doesn’t have it all his own way.

Fellow World Student Champion, Angie Petty (NZ), leads the entries in the IMC Women’s 800m. Petty has dipped below the magical 2-minute barrier (1.59.06) and is also the Le Chéile record holder over 1500m. She will face off against last year’s 800m winner and track record holder, Katherine Camp Marshall, also from New Zealand.

In the short sprints, we welcome World Medalist and European Champion, Harry Aikines Aryeetey (GB), for the FloElen Construction Men’s 100m. Earlier this year, he flew to a wind-aided 9.90secs for the distance, and has a personal best of 10.08. He will line up against Desmond Lawrence (US) who has an identical PB, meaning we will see fireworks in the shortest event!

Another returning track record holder is Seb Rodger (GB) in the Leixlip and District Credit Union Men’s 400m Hurdles. Rodger, a Rio Olympian, sped to 49.89secs at the 2015 Le Chéile International and will be looking to better this mark on Saturday 15th July. He will face stiff opposition from Nigeria’s African Games Champion, Christian Morton, and New Zealand record holder Michael Cochrane.

The Athletics Ireland Men’s 1500m promises to be a titanic tussle, with six athletes within three seconds of each other. Leading the entries is Robert Domanic (US), who boasts an impressive Mile PB of 3minutes 54 seconds. European Championship Finalist from 2016, Tamara Salaski (SRB), leads the entries in the Women’s 400m where she will face most of Ireland’s top one-lappers, and Adam McMullen will line up as favourite in a strong Long Jump field.

For the first time we will host Wheelchair Events, featuring Irish Olympian, Patrick Monaghan. The Irish Milers Club will once again ensure top quality organisation and efficiency on the day. nTrai are once again our streaming partners, and they will provide full coverage of all races, including interviews and analysis across the 3 hours of the programme, kicking off at 2pm.

AIT Athletics currently invites entries for the 4th annual ‘AIT Baseline Indoor T&F Meet’ from athletes looking to lay down a marker for the coming indoor season.

Similar to previous years this event, which has proven immensely popular and was a sell-out in 2015, will give athletes the opportunity to test themselves in several non-standard events on the state-of the-art Athlone IT International Arena track. Electronic timing will be available.

While many athletes may not yet feel fully race-fit, the programme comprises of several events often used in training to assess fitness, or lay down a base-line.  So get down to AIT on Wednesday 14th December to lay down your base-line and kick off your indoor season. 

This is an Open category competition open to Junior, Senior and Master athletes.  However, athletes must be eligible to compete in senior competition as per Athletics Ireland rules.   

As this is presented as a time-trial event, rather than a formal competition, seeding and associated lane draws are not guaranteed in any track event.  However we will endeavour to seed where possible. All track events will run as heats only.

Place note a 1000m race has been added to this year’s programme in place of a 600m after several requests for same.

Entries must be made on-line by 5pm on Monday 12th December.  Cost is €6 per event payable on-line.

2016 Events: Open Male & Open Female 60m, 150m, 300m, 1000m, 3000m, LJ, SP & HJ.  As per previous years, we will endeavour to distribute start-lists in advance of the competition.
