Work has re-started with the track refurbishment at Carmarthen. You will now be aware having looked at our articles and media updates over recent monthsf that work is set to be completed in 2020 by Carmarthenshire County Council resurfacing and improving elements of the Carmarthen Leisure Centre Athletics Track in Johnstown (home of Carmarthen & District Harriers Athletics Club).
The track fully closed and works started by contractors from South Wales Sport Ltd on 5th February 2020.
As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the work was suspended since Thursday 26th March but the good news is that after eighty-two days away, work re-started and is ongoing since (Monday 15th June).
A big thanks to contractors South Wales Sport Ltd for their hard work so far with the refurbishment of the athletics track which is going very well.
Carmarthen Harriers club training have re-started gradually on 18th July away from Johnstown as two of the club's bases (athletics track and Leisure Centre sportshall) are currently out of action.
Training sessions are on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons weekly using the track facility at Parc Y Scarlets in Pemberton Llanelli SA14 9UZ as a result of the Carmarthen Leisure Centre track being out of use whilst it is being refurbished.
Training sessions are currently by arrangement with coaches only and all social measures in place.

This is an exiting time for the club, county of Carmarthenshire and West Wales, and we would like to thank parents, athletes and the public for their co-operation during the weeks ahead when the facility will be out of action which is to be continued longer than we first thought.
Over the next few weeks and months, we'll bring you weekly images and videos of the progress across Facebook, Twitter & Instagram!
A reminder that the grounds of Carmarthen Leisure Centre in Johnstown is closed to the public. Alongside refurbishment work continuing on the athletics track and the car park, the Leisure Centre has also been converted into a temporary field hospital to help Hywel Dda University Health Board deal with its response to coronavirus in Carmarthenshire.
