Covid-19 Update

Our governing body Welsh Athletics has now issued a statement (see below) that they are extending the suspension of all athletics activities including formal club activities and running groups until May 31st.

As a club we will need to adhere to this. Therefore there will be no club sessions until June at the earliest. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep all members updated.

The Board of Welsh Athletics met yesterday, 23rd March, to discuss the Corona Virus situation in relation to athletics in Wales. Following the further restrictions on movement put in place by the UK Government last night, they agreed the following updates to our previous statement issued on 17th March:

1. Extending the suspension of all athletics activity in Wales to the 31st May. [Initially, this had been agreed to the end of April]. This suspension includes all organised athletics activity with the UK, including all competitions, formal club activities, running groups, and all Education activity (coach, official, teacher).

2. Strengthening our position on coaching activity - We are now mandating that all physical coaching ceases, and only be conducted via virtual means during this period. Bringing groups of people together to train, however small, can no longer be permitted under the strict ‘Stay at home’ measures implemented by the UK & Welsh Governments
