WW Champs + Other News including Llanelli Triathlons Weekend, Night Trail Wales 10k - Results from Swansea University Athletics Track, the venue for the 2016 West Wales Region Outdoor Athletics Championships on Sunday.



Athletes from Swansea, Carmarthen, Neath, Pembrokeshire, Run 4 All Neath and Llanelli turned out for this annual fixture and the conditions helped ensuring that many personal bests were recorded and saw some exciting races and performances. The Walks & Steeplechase races incorporated the South & East Regions championship.

In total, 39 athletes from Carmarthen headed east and were present out of around 400 athletes registered, the biggest for a few years (it still could have been more from the club!), and performed well as a team to collect 31 medals throughout the day, some just missing out with several 4th place finishes.

Gold 14

Silver 14

Bronze 3

Very encouraging seeing many harriers vests out on show whether it was on the track or on the field and would be unfair to pick out any individuals. Well done all of you...even those who didn't make the top three but gave it your all.

Thanks to the West Wales Organising Committee for staging the well run event in the sun once again and to all at Swansea for hosting. Many volunteers & photo finish were present at the track setting up for the competition as early as 8am on Sunday morning and did not get away until after 7pm, showing the amount of work it takes to hold this regional championship.
