Fifty years as Cardiff AAC

The year 2018 marks fifty years since two relatively small clubs joined together to become one of the most important in Britain.

Roath Harriers had been founded in 1882 as a "harrier" club and became one of the leading Welsh clubs. A few other local clubs sprang up in Cardiff, including Birchgrove Harriers in the early 1950s. The two clubs shared Maindy Stadium and, in 1968 decided to amalgamate. Thus Cardiff AAC came into being and the rest is history.
