BUCS Championships

This weekend the Regional Championships, Saturday 11th May are being in Aberdare for U17 and below age groups.

On Sunday 12th May the BAL Premier League match 1, takes place at Swansea.

As well as athletes having lots of race opportunities, problems are being experienced with Club Team Managemen,t and Officials. Due to the Cardiff track refurbishment taking 9months to complete, has led to loss of home fixtures and finding people to help with Team Management with younger age groups, and officiating at these events. Hopefully problems being experienced at present will improve as season progresses.
