Swansea Trotters is the official alumni club for graduates of Swansea University’s Athletics, Cross Country & Triathlon Clubs. Founded in January 2012 Swansea Trotters was established as a means for graduates to reconnect with former teammates, organise reunion events, and as an outlet to keep in touch and provide a support network for the current University Teams.
