Over the last few weeks not only have we seen a return to competition activities but we have also seen a much wider increase in club training and activity. Facility access, albeit understandably limited, is also improving as more providers and operators are opening to club members and, in some instances, the general public. Further details of the status of dedicated athletics facilities across Wales can be found here.

Club and groups across Wales are starting to see members return and it is fantastic that this is being done in a safe and effective manner. It is our collective responsibility that, during these unprecedented times, we continue to act responsibly for the benefit of ourselves and each other.
