Swansea Harriers are based at Swansea University Athletics Centre, Swansea Click here for directions. The club’s individual and collective achievements are far too many to list. We have produced many Great Britain and Welsh International Athletes in all age groups from Junior to Senior and won numerous Welsh and British titles. We compete in the highest possible leagues in the UK.
Every member is expected to compete for the club in competition appropriate to their ability. We do not have the resources and are unable to accept members who join purely to get fit for other sports or training only. Every effort is made to ensure that new members are quickly integrated into the club. Emphasis is placed on enjoyment and participation.
Track & Field Seniors & Juniors Training
Around fifty different training sessions are held 7 days a week depending on age group, ability and event discipline. Please get in touch for specific details.
