Welcome to the official home of statistics and data relating to athletics in Northern Ireland and Ulster. Our mission is to provide current and historical data relating to Records; Rankings; All Time Lists; Championship results; Athlete Profiles; News and much more. It is an ongoing project and we welcome any additions or amendments to johnt.glover@ntlworld.com.


Northern Ireland Records from the beginning of 2021 will be recognised in three categories namely National, Native and All Comers. Within each category there will be Senior, Under 20 and U18 records and separate records will be held for Outdoor and Indoor performances. 


"If you don't know history then you don't know anything. You are a leaf who doesn't know it is part of a tree." 

Athletics in Ulster has a long and often volatile history. Part of that history is the men and women who have won championships, set records and produced outstanding performances.
