Kyran lived in Llangain, a small village, two miles west of the county town of Carmarthen. He went to QE Maridunum/QE High Secondary School in Carmarthen, after school he went on a sports scholarship to Loughborough University where he graduated with a first class honours degree

Kyran like so many other young Carmarthen Harriers athletes at primary school competed in the annual Carmarthen Mayor’s Road races and the Carmarthenshire and Dyfed primary school events

He joined Carmarthen and District Harriers Athletics Club at the age of nine and as an under 11 athlete competed for the Harriers in the Gwent Cross Country League. In this League there are five matches in the season and to do well one has to compete in all five matches

Coached by Carmarthen Harriers coach Delyth Brown Kyran finished 6th overall in 2007 in the novice boy section of the Gwent Cross Country League. In 2009 Kyran was the overall Gwent Cross Country League under 13 boys champion. He won the last race that season at the United Counties Showground Carmarthen on 14 March 2009

Kyran had a brilliant career as a junior athlete with Carmarthen Harriers. One of the highlights for him was winning in 2010 the Welsh under 15 1500m championship on his home track in Carmarthen

In 2017 he broke the Carmarthen Harriers senior 1500m record which had stood for 50 years

A summary of his main successes is as follows:-

  • Winner of 2 UK indoor championships
  • Winner of 9 Welsh championships
  • Competed for Welsh schools in 4 SIAB schools international matches (2 cross country and 2 track)
  • Competed for Welsh Schools in 2 UK School Games and 1 London mini marathon
  • Competed for Wales in 2 Celtic Junior Internationals
  • Competed for Wales in many senior international matches

A dedicated athlete, Kyran was a faithful member of Carmarthen Harriers and competed regularly for the Club, Dyfed Schools and West Wales

It is sad that Kyran as well as many other athletes have not been able to compete in 2020

Catherine lived in Bronwydd, a small village two miles from the County town of Carmarthen. She went to QE Cambria / QE High Secondary School in Carmarthen and then on to University of Wales St Davids University in Carmarthen where she did a degree in nursing

Her mother Joan was for many years an excellent coach with Carmarthen Harriers and a team manager of many successful Carmarthen Harriers and West Wales winning athletics teams. She has also been for the last 15 years or so the Welsh schools indoor pentathlon, athletics and cross country girls team manager

In 2005 she had the honour of competing in Carmarthen in the shot in the 2005 Celtic Junior Games and later also in the same year in Carmarthen winning the shot event in the 2005 Welsh Inter Regional Championships. On 10 December 2005 Catherine competed in Glasgow in the first of her five SIAB Schools international matches (3 pentathlon and 2 in the shot putt)

Below is a list of Catherine Goldsmith’s main successes

  • Won 24 medals (6 gold, 9 silver and 9 bronze) in Welsh athletics or Welsh schools championships
  • Competed for Welsh Schools in 5 SIAB Schools international matches
  • Competed for Wales in 2 Celtic Junior Internationals
  • Competed for Welsh Schools in 1 UK School Games
  • Competed for Wales in several other international events
