WELSH JUNIOR LEAGUE / LOUISE ARTHUR LEAGUE - CARMARTHEN 25.05.19

Three weeks after round 1 in Haverfordwest incorporating Gerald Codd Trophy match, The second WJL/Louise Arthur League for under 11, under 13 and under 15's will be heading to the home of Carmarthen Harriers at the Carmarthen Leisure Centre Athletics Track in Johnstown SA31 3NQ on Saturday 25th May 2019 between 11:00am & 6:20pm.

Earlier on in May saw Swansea Harriers and Pembrokeshire Harriers battle it out to claim top spot in Haverfordwest and as a result, the Gerald Codd Trophy. The Swansea club just came out on top in the end but it was also a great effort from the local club who put on a great event for the other eight clubs.

The Louise Arthur League has gone from strength to strength with around 500 athletes competing in each event in 2018. It's given children of all ages between under 11 and under 15 age groups the opportunity to compete in a friendly league alongside runners from across South Wales.
