Team declarations must be made on the Team Managers’ portal and must be made at least 24 hours before the start of the meeting. For clarification: This refers to declarations for athletes and officials.

And finally we are extremely grateful to the volunteers from Aberdare Athletics Club who have made and continue to make this event possible behind the scenes, sacrificing many hours of their free time to get just all the paperwork done thus far. Organising track & field fixtures was complex enough before Covid 19, and has now become even more so!
