Cardiff Gwent League

Thursday 5 November 2015

The second round of this season's Gwent Cross Country League takes place in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields on Sunday next (first event at 12 noon) and, after making a great start in Bridgend on 11th October, Cardiff will hopefully exceed the record turnout last year.

All those intending to compete should, by now, have informed the relevant team managers but there is still time if you have left it late.

Contact your team manager straight away.

The team managers are:

Senior Women (U23 and older) - Arwyn Davies 07855 952862 and Liz Davies 07815952457

Junior Boys (up to under 20) – Kay Chapman 07749 716151 or kay.chapman@tesco.net

Junior Girls (up to under 20) – Tracey Gammon 07795 098053 or tagammon@btinternet.com

Don’t forget that you will need long spikes in your running spikes (available in the clubroom at £2.50 for a set of twelve) to help you grip and you must wear a club vest. You have to be at least 9 years old on the day of the race to compete and are advised to get to the venue at least one hour before your race so that you can check with your team manager and walk the course. It is a team competition so we need as many of you to compete as possible to get the most points – we won the overall prize for top junior club last season!

And here is an important request to all athletes and parents. Please remember that the team managers are volunteers and take on a difficult responsibility. If you are unhappy with anything please bear this in mind and understand the pressure that team managers are under. On some, thankfully rare, occasions team managers have had to put up with personal criticism and even abuse. Cardiff AAC will not accept this and takes the matter extremely seriously. The use of social media is regarded as particularly unacceptable.
