Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one

Cardiff is top club in Britain

Saturday 23 November 2013

Hot on the heels of being crowned Welsh Athletics club of the year, Cardiff AAC has topped the poll to become British club of the year.

Cardiff AAC took 32% of the vote, with Bristol & West AC second with 29%, Edinburgh AC third with 21% and Derry Spartans AC fourth with 18%.

With voting open to anyone interested in athletics, to win the vote is a remarkable achievement given the opposition and the much greater number of clubs in England and Scotland.

The club's credentials were impressive, having enjoyed its most successful year for some time. The senior men's British Athletics League track and field team regained its place in the premier division (which includes the eight strongest clubs in Britain) whilst, on the road, the club's 12 stage road relay team won the bronze medal at the national championships in Birmingham.

Elsewhere the junior teams performed exceptionally and helped the club to the Wilkinson Sword trophy for the highest number of Welsh championship medals.

Cardiff AAC was Welsh Track and Field club of the year and Welsh Off Track club of the year. At the individual level, club athletes also had a good year with, for example, Olympian Rhys Williams setting personal best times and representing Great Britain at the World Championships in Moscow.

Many congratulations to all who contributed to these successes and thanks to all who voted for us.
