This year, the important Cardiff edition of the UK Cross Challenge series will be combined with the Gwent League in Cardiff so it should be a great start to the season.

Curtis Mathews 2014

After leaving athletics for rugby a couple of years ago, decathlete Curtis Mathews missed the challenge of the ten events and is now back and on form, having the ambition to represent Wales in the next Commonwealth Games.

As one of the success stories of the Glasgow Games in 2014, when he produced no fewer than six personal bests for eighth place, Curtis has now surpassed that with a new personal best score of 7,500, equalling the B qualification standard and improving his own club record.
