The job of running an athletics club is never an easy one. With both Yate & District Athletic Club and Westbury Harriers struggling, they decided to discus their situations and in April 1997 agreed to form a partnership.
On Sunday 5th of January 2020 there were two South West Championships being held at the same time.
TRI-COUNTIES CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Cross Country (XC) season is now upon us.
