The 2017 outdoor season is fast approaching as is the ever popular opening fixture of the Welsh Athletics League which will take place at Newport Athletics Stadium on Sunday 23rd April.
Last year’s League Champions Swansea Harriers will be looking for back-to-back titles in this hugely significant year for domestic athletics.
The first three fixtures of the league adopt an open meeting format, and we welcome guest athletes from non-affiliated clubs, with no limit on the number of athletes that can compete from league affiliated clubs. All events at each meeting are seeded on season’s bests ensuring a competitive day for all athletes. The early first fixture also falls at the ideal time for university athletes in particular who may be looking to post a mark before the BUCS Championships. Photofinish & EDM will be available at every meeting.
Entries for the Welsh Athletics League cost £5 per athlete and are to be made on the day of competition at the registration desk. Please see individual event timetables using the links below.
