Ciaran Lewis 2013 12 November 2018

Cross Country November

The second Gwent League was held in Pembrey Park last Saturday. After the awful weather there last month with Welsh RR's, it was better, allthough we experienced very heavy rain showers driven by a srong wind until 1pm. The course surface was firm underfoot, with sand on course, flattened by the heavy rain showers, making it easier to run over for the runners.

In the senior men's race, 410 starters, 405 finished. Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis was a clear winner winning by 17secs, at finish, Ciaran said, that was tough, course was testing with a series of hills around the 5km large lap. As other Cardiff runners finished, they made same comment. Besides the hills it was the strong wind that all experience around the course and into the finishing straight. Stephen Morris 7th with Jake Smith 9th. Our final 2 runners making a team score James Chambers 130th and Paul Edwards 349th. After 2 meetings our senior men's team is overall in 12th place.

Last Friday at Cardiff City FC stadium our club celebrated our 50th year with an Anniversary Dinner. The evening was a success, that included 181 people attending. Attendance was a mix of former members of both previous clubs, current officials parents, and younger members of our club. 

Many presentations were made, but this time they were not all made at the same time. Compere for evening was Robert Cole, a media man, and well known with his athletic reports. He started with a introduction of of club achievements, with a number of photos on a large screen, with music, that led into the first round of awards, before the first course meal was served.
