Run Wales

The announcement by the First Minister on Wednesday 14th July regarding the easing of COVID restrictions in Wales was a huge boost for the sport in terms of return to training and activity for groups across Wales. As a result, the Return to Group Running guidance previously published and any associated restrictions have been removed.

Running groups should continue to be mindful of the need to risk assess activities and take necessary precautions to minimise the risk of the spread of the virus in line with the latest Welsh Government regulations and guidance. The Track and Trace procedures adopted by groups throughout the pandemic should be continued as a matter of course. All activity taking place across the sport should take into account both national and any more localised restrictions that may be applicable.

We have already seen the return of a limited number of events across Wales and Welsh Athletics are working with competition providers to establish a safe and comprehensive wider return to activity. We hope that events will return comprehensively over the late summer period and we look forward to being together again in a greater capacity.
