The weekend of Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th August saw the Welsh Junior Championships held at sunny Newport, in what was a great weekend of competition, but considering we are Wales largest athletics club the number of entries from the juniors was average and the club will be expecting a better showing in future championships from them, the championships being in the middle of the school holidays didn’t help boost entries though.
