Other Info:
The track is in good condition and is obviously still used. The infield is a football pitch. It is sometimes referred to being as in Blaen Clydach or Rhondda and hosted Welsh League and Championship Meetings in the 1970s. This was probably the venue of a 46.86 HT by Leanne Jones on 12 Jun 1997. This suggests that the throwing cage which only has a DT-sized circle is also used for HT. The LJ/TJ and JT runways are synthetic.
