Welsh Schools has released details of its 51st National cross-country championships, which, for the twelfth consecutive year, will be held at Brecon’s Penlan Arena on Saturday, February 23rd.  The post code for Penlan is LD3 9SR.

This last fortnight before half term is a busy one for four of the eight districts – Afan Nedd Tawe, Dyfed, Eryri, and Powys – all of whom either have held or are in the process of staging their final competition before they select squads of up to twelve athletes to compete in each of the eight different races at the Nationals.  The other four districts – Cardiff & the Vale of Glamorgan, Glamorgan Valleys, North East Wales and South East Wales – completed their selection competitions earlier in the winter.

All the pupils competing are representing their school district – there are no guest runners.  Each competitor is required to wear the vest of his/her district and their individual number (on the front of their vest and fixed with four pins, one at each corner).
