Return to Athletics
Following the latest announcment made on 22nd of December 2021, we have updated our Return to Athletics guidance documents - please see below.
Event organisers, affiliated clubs and running groups should continue to be mindful of the need to risk assess activities and take necessary precautions to minimise the risk of the spread of the virus in line with the latest Welsh Government regulations and guidance. The Track and Trace procedures adopted by clubs and groups throughout the pandemic should be continued as a matter of course. All activity taking place across the sport should take into account both national and any more localised restrictions that may be applicable.
Our licensing process will continue to ensure the safety of competitors, volunteers and spectators at these events.
Please note Welsh Athletics is the only recognised licensing body for all athletics disciplines in Wales [Track & Field, Road, Trail, Mountain & Cross Country].
