The Wiltshire Athletics Committee, as with all athletics county committees, is made up of volunteers giving time and in many cases resources to enable the county athletics organisation to function.

When contacting or discussing county affairs we ask that all individuals are respected whether on the committee or not.

Individual committee members maybe contacted via the Contact page.
