Over recent days we have seen more clubs and groups returning to activity and training which has been a boost to the sport. In addition, there have been more virtual activities and challenges taking place across Wales to get more people active in a fun and engaging way. As has been clear throughout the pandemic, clubs and groups across the country have been amazing in responding to the challenges - adapting accordingly, showing resilience and resolve which, in turn, has bought with it a sense of togetherness throughout the athletics community.
Why not support your club even further?? Ways that you can get involved and #SupportYourClub this week include;
