Simon Lawson completed a fine season to be ranked first in both 10,000m and half marathon and second in the 5,000m in the under 20 age group. The club's most succesful event was the pole vault where no less than 8 Cardiff athletes appeared in the rankings. Best placed was Lewis Newton (pictured in action) who placed 4th in the under 17 age group.

Particularly impressive was Ava Hutchinson who won the senior ladies' race. Alex Hains (pictured) was third in the senior men's race.
