Return to Athletics

On 29th May we published version one of our roadmap for Lifting Athletics out of Lockdown  mapped against the 4 phases of the Welsh Government's unlocking Our Society and Economy plan - Black, Red, Amber & Green. Timescales for implementation of our plan will be dictated by the lifting of Welsh Government restrictions. We are continuing to liaise on a daily basis with colleagues in the other home nations athletics federations to ensure consistency and clarity where possible despite the differences in the speed and nature of the easing of restrictions.

Below you'll find the latest more detailed guidance for each element of the sport. This guidance will be evolving as Government guidance and restrictions change, and as learning about the COVID19 virus continues, so please keep checking to ensure you are following the latest versions.
