Walking Groups with organised activities and events should appoint a Covid-19 Contact. This person will act to inform members and implement best practice regarding Covid-19.

Completing the Sport Ireland Covid-19 Return to Sport online course will provide additional information on the role of the Covid-19 Contact within a group. Please click here: Sport Ireland Covid19 Return to Sport Online Course

Participants in organised activities and events should provide a Covid-19 Declaration in advance. Click for Participation Declaration.

The three key questions are:

o Have you travelled abroad in the past 14 days?
o Have you had any of the symptoms of Covid-19 in the past 14 days? o Have you been in contact with anyone who has Covid-19 in the past 14 days?

To comply with GDPR participants consent should be sought before this information is shared with Walk Leader(s). Assurances should be given that this information will not be shared or used for any other purposes.

For the purpose of Contact Tracing a digital record of participant’s personal details should be kept. The club activity list that you use for organised activities can be used for this purpose. Click for Walking Group Register.

Get Ireland Walking recognises that walking is an activity with a potential risk of personal injury. Participants should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
