Longford Sports Partnership works to develop and promote sport and physical activity in County Longford.

Physical activity and sport are not only good for your physical health but also your mental health.

In these uncertain times our normal physical activity and sports routine has been put on hold and as the country continues to adhere to the social distancing guidelines and government advice, it is important to remember that it is still possible to be active.

Longford Sports Partnership will be doing its best to help you stay active. We will be sharing daily social media posts and online resources with links to various physical activities/challenges that can be done at home.

Our first virtual challenge is our Strava 5K challenge. These will be activities, challenges, and physical activities recommendations of our own and shared from various National Governing Bodies of Sport, local sports clubs, coaches, instructors and service providers. We hope you can take time to try some of these activities and stay active.  

It is more important than ever to look after your health, schedule some physical activity for yourself and your family. Make it fun, be creative, take some time for yourself or do something as a whole family.

We can still avail of the outdoors. Take advantage of some of Longford’s lovely walking routes. Please follow the government advice and if exercising outdoors maintain social distance guidelines of two metres space when in the vicinity of other people.

If using a looped walking route such as the Royal Canal in Longford town or Albert Reynolds Peace Park, please walk in a clockwise direction.

This will help reduce your potential social contacts.We look forward to all our daily lives returning to normal when this COVID-19 emergency has passed. In the mean time keep safe and follow government advice.
