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:
“These decisions have not been taken lightly, and have been made in light of the continuing and real risk to life and to the NHS posed by the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Wales and the UK. We must now do all we can do. We would ask that the athletics community in Wales continues to help one another by staying connected and supportive of each other whilst at home in these unprecedented times. We will continue to review the situation in line with Government and Public Health guidance.”

North Wales Junior Mountain Running Championships 2018 Saturday 22 September 2018
After the week of high winds and rain, it was an overcast but fine day for the 12th NWJMRC on the Great Orme, Llandudno. 70 children took part in the event, with 6 races covering the age groups under 9 to under 19. Records were broken in the U/19 and U/17 races by Mike Spill, Tom Wood and Lois Lee.
Huge thanks to Mike Blake for his organisation, the sponsors and supporters – including Conwy BC, The Summit Complex, Xray minerals, Mostyn Estates, St John’s Ambulance, Great Orme Copper mines, and Sinclair Steel. Also, the marshalls (sorry I don’t have a list of all of you), timekeepers (Craig and Hayley), registration/results team (Ann/Sharon), Stuart on his bike, and all of the parents/grandparents/taxi who transported the youngsters and gave them the opportunity to have a go.
See attached for the full results – if you spot any spelling errors, they are mine, not Ann or Sharon’s!
