The Irish national meeting will be the first event to go ahead in 2021 after every other race, with the exception of September’s rescheduled Cookstown 100, was cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

In July, the organisers received a boost when the Northern Ireland Executive confirmed the cap on 500 people at outdoor gatherings would be relaxed.

The Armoy ‘Race of Legends’ will also be the first Irish road race since the Cookstown 100 was held over 10 months ago in Co Tyrone – the only road race run in Ireland in 2020.
