Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one


Congratulations Tuesday 23 December 2014

Congratulations to Rhys Williams and Leila James on their marriage yesterday.

After a ceremony at St Augustine's Church in Rumney, Cardiff, that Leila had attended as a small girl, Rhys, Leila and their families moved to the Celtic Manor Resort where they were joined by friends and celebrated well into the night.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Friday 19 December 2014


Owing to an unprecedented late rush of entries for the U17/U15/U13 South Wales/East Wales/South West England Indoor Championships and Junior Open Indoor event at NIAC on Sunday 4th January some events have now been moved to Saturday 3rd January to ease the congested timetable.

A one-day timetable was unrealistic and, in order to cope, a number of events for South Wales and East Wales athletes, who are local to the venue, will take place on Saturday 3rd January.

All Members - IMPORTANT Thursday 18 December 2014

Have you moved? Changed your email address or mobile phone number?

It is important that we have up to date details as we communicate with all our members by email and/or mobile phone.

We are aware of some members who have missed out on Welsh team selections because of a change of address that we did not know about.

So, please help us to help you.
