West clubs will be heading to the Swansea University Athletics Track, while for the East division, they will go for the second time in less than a month to the Newport Stadium Athletics Track. Newport Harriers were third round hosts with Cwmbran Harriers in the fourth but at the same venue.

Carmarthen, Hereford, Neath, Cardiff, Brecon & Newport have already seen the league visit their venues over the past two months.

The following clubs will be taking part throughout the 2018 Louise Arthur League season:

WEST Carmarthen Harriers (1-100); Barry & Vale Harriers (101-170); Pontyclun AC (171-200); Brecon AC (201-290); Neath Harriers (291-360); Pembrokeshire Harriers (361-460); Bridgend AC (461-540); Llanelli AC (541-590) and Swansea Harriers (591-750).

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 and Mid 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 as the West Fixtures.





It's been another busy campaign in the Youth Development League for the upper U17/20 age groups which saw West Wales go head to head with the top teams in the Premier South West Division again in 2018. Thanks to the hard work of athletes, supporters, coaches and team managers, the team came fourth overall after the matches at Swansea, Cardiff and Exeter and will go in to the Promotion Match.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the final has been moved closer to home to the Swansea University Athletics Track on Sunday 29th July. The top three from the West 1 league will join this final with the top three teams on the day heading into the Premier Division for next year's competition.

The final will comprise of: West Wales, Swansea Harriers, Cardiff Archers, Team Gwent, Cheltenham & District Harriers and South East Wales.
