Lifting Athletics out of Lockdown - our roadmap

29/05/2020 00:00, I Mewn Blog /

We have today published version one of our roadmap for Lifting Athletics out of Lockdown  mapped against the 4 phases of the Welsh Government's unlocking Our Society and Economy plan - Black, Red, Amber & Green. Timescales for implementation of our plan will be dictated by the lifting of Welsh Government restrictions. We are continuing to liaise on a daily basis with colleagues in the other home nations athletics federations to ensure consistency and clarity where possible despite the differences in the speed and nature of the easing of restrictions.

"Although we're unable to remove the suspension of athletics activity at this time, we wanted to reassure our athletics community in Wales that we working hard behind the scenes to plan and prepare for a safe return to athletics as soon as we're able. We appreciate everyone's patience and frustrations, and hope that this roadmap - and the further detailed guidance for different elements of our sport that we'll publish next week - will provide a starting point we can all work with to get athletics back up and running in Wales safely.

We would like to once again thank our clubs and passionate volunteers for their ongoing support, and we look forward to continuing to engage their views on how we can best support them during this challenging period"

James Williams, Interim CEO

The suspension of athletics activity until the 19th June remains in place and coincides with the next scheduled Welsh Government review of restrictions - we hope that at this time we may see changes that allow some activity to resume. The suspension of athletics competition currently remains in place until the 30th of June.
