Alumni

We have many high profile alumni including GB athletes such as Dewi Griffiths and Verity Ockenden and the CEO of Run4Wales, Matt Newman. Some of our alumni still train and help coach the club today.

We love supporting and watching our alumni athletes go on to succeed in their athletics careers, work and life which is why we always aim to maintain close links with our club alumni after they graduate. That is why we organise various events inviting back old friends throughout the year.
