After two years missing from the athletics calendar due to the impact of Covid19, Irelands premier international athletics meeting is back on Tuesday July 5th 2022 at the MTU stadium in Bishopstown. The Continental Tour Bronze permit gives the event a raised status and will mean a boost to the meeting as it ensures higher ranking points and more prize money on offer for athletes.
The Continental Tour was the brainchild of Galway man Pierce O Callaghan, Head of Competition Management for World Athletics. It puts a structure on one day athletics meetings throughout the world comprising of Gold, Silver and Bronze level meetings, on each continent. BAM Cork City Sports is the only Bronze permit meeting on the island of Ireland.
