All those hard hours of winter training are behind you, its time to deliver - here's a summary of all the key Track & Field meetings coming up this season:

Championships

The pinnacle of the athletics calendar in Wales where everyone will be competing for the title of Welsh Champion. A couple of changes for 2019; Junior Championships will take place in Wrexham, Inter-Regional Championships will move to Aberdare this year then rotating around the regions in subsequent years. Senior Championships will include some Masters categories in 1500 and 5k (M35, M45, M55, M65+)

Internationals
