The noticeable increase in people walking, running and cycling over the last few months has been backed up by new Sport Ireland findings which show that an unprecedented numbers of adults in Ireland are now engaging in some sort of exercise.

 

With the Covid-19 pandemic leading to a suspension of all organised sport as well as the closure of gyms and swimming pools, people have increased their activity levels with 51 per cent of the country currently participating in sport while an estimated 3.1 million people are regularly walking.

 

Research conducted by Ipsos MRBI on behalf of Sport Ireland – which was spread over five phases beginning on February 28th – shows that 710,000 people are regularly participating in the category of exercise, 680,000 people are running and 510,000 people are cycling.
