With Swansea Harriers celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2012 the club is delighted to add a new fixture to the summer programme with the introduction of the Swansea Junior Golden Games, on Sunday 26th August 2012 at Swansea University.
It was back in the 1980’s and 1990’s that Morfa Stadium hosted a major junior meeting in Swansea over a period of 15 years with the fixture attracting over 600 competitors on many occasions making it one of the largest open meetings on the calendar and one which saw big name athletes such as Colin Jackson and Hayley Tullett make some of their early competitive appearances on a running track.
Based on a similar format it is hoped that this year’s meeting will prove to be equally as popular with athletes as the original from earlier times and become a standard fixture on the annual competition scene. Awards will be made to the first three in each event.
Advance entry is required. A list of events can be found on the entry form. Numbers will be collected on arrival on the day. Entry fees are £4 for one event with additional events £2 each.
