Athletics now shares the same goals as everyone else - protecting everyone from the Corona Virus and saving the NHS. Please be smart, do not train in groups, respect the health guidelines, look out for each other, stay physically active, stay well #SaveTheNHS #Coronavirus.

We have today, Tuesday 24th, issued an updated statement extending the restrictions on athletics in Wales.

Whilst these restrictions are in place we'll be collating and looking to provide opportunities to Stay Safe but Stay Competitive
