Our new social secretaries Nancy and Rhys have loads of great social and event ideas and are eager to get started.
Come back here in October to find out about our next charity fundraiser and any upcoming events.
We have many high profile alumni including GB athletes such as Dewi Grffiths and Verity Ockenden and the Chief Executive of Welsh Athletics, 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.
