The Louise Arthur League has gone from strength to strength with around 500 athletes competing in each event in 2017. It's given children of all ages between under 11 and under 15 age groups the opportunity to compete in a friendly league alongside runners from across South Wales. The Louise Arthur League is split into two leagues - the West and East. East matches feature those in the South East area and take place on the same weekends and the West fixtures.
