Over the last few weeks, Welsh Athletics has launched a number of ways in which it pledges to support clubs and groups across Wales during early 2021. There are lots of ways the athletics & running community can get involved. Here’s a handy recap of all the activities available for clubs and our members:

Run Wales #FromMyDoor Campaign

Whether you walk, jog or run, it all starts #FromMyDoor for more information on how to take part in the social running campaign that is sweeping the nation click here.

Club Development Webinar Series

A series of free webinars will take place over the next few months, covering topics such as how to ensure your club is following best practice when it comes to governance, marketing your club effectively, and how to set up a virtual competition for your members plus many more! These sessions will be ‘bitesize’ and will offer an introduction to each of the topics, hoping to inspire clubs to remain productive and positive throughout this lockdown period.
