Athletics events stole the show at Pontypridd Council's Air Show on Whit Monday 1960.  By their conduct and sportmanship the athletes were a credit to Welsh Athletics and the people of Pontypridd were quick to show their appreciation.

Troedyrhiw AC decided in 1970 to hold track events at the Afon Taf track instead of their annual road races.

The 76th Welsh Senior XC Champs held at a cold, wet and windy Swansea on

2 Feb 1980 were a bit

Steve Jones and Tony Simmons broke away from the field and decided to

run in together to create the first ever dead heat in the history of the race.

Outdoor Championships Females


Welsh Championships for Senior Women were first held at Maindy Stadium, Cardiff on 7 June 1952, along with championship events for U15 Girls.  Championships for U17 Women took place at Abertillery on 30 June 1962, for U13 Girls at Cwmbran on 7 June 1975 and finally championships for U20 Women were held at Cwmbran on 11 June 1983.


For each age group, the first three athletes are listed with their clubs and performances.  Early programmes and results rarely gave first names, so efforts have been made to find first names.  This is the first time that such detailed lists have been published, however the lists are not complete so additions and amendments are welcome.
