Bernie Plain

More honours have come the way of Cardiff AAC with the award of the MBE in the New Year’s Honours to life member Bernard (Bernie) Plain; for services to athletics. Bernie was one of Wales best middle and long distance runners, just missing out on a medal when he finished fourth in the 1974 European Marathon championship. Bernie’s European run was the highlight of his long running career but, amongst many other achievements for his club, Wales and Great Britain, he is still the holder of the UK 20 mile track record of 1:40:34.6. The photograph was kindly provided by leading sports photographer Mark Shearman.
