Club Championship Races 

Main Races for 2021

 

**LATEST NEWS (January 2021) Due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 virus, we are in the process of constructing the 2021 Race List, as many events’ dates have not been finalised yet.

THE LIST BELOW IS VERY PROVISIONAL AND WILL BE UPDATED AS SOON AS WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION. IT INCLUDES DETAILS FROM 2020; SOME OF THESE RACES WON’T HAPPEN IN 2021.

We’ll kick off with some Virtual races organised by Welsh Athletics, and then hopefully add some “in-person” events once they are confirmed as going ahead.  We will only offer up a Main Championship in 2021, but possibly add some Trail Races later in the year**
