Staging this event presented unique challenges. First COVID, then unseasonably unsettled weather. There was a strengthening south-westerly wind, and intermittent rain which became heavier in the afternoon. That said, the standard of the performances was outstanding, with the obvious stand-out performance being Ollie Garrod’s gun-to-tape 4:00:53. Very many thanks to a brilliant support team, all the volunteers, Vale of Glamorgan Council and Welsh Athletics.
