Cardiff on a roll? Wednesday 10 June 2009

A new stadium; a new start? Old hands, who have seen it all before, are saying that the club is going through better times than it has seen for many years. Are we seeing green shoots or vigorous growth? Looking back, it is now clear that the last five to ten years at the old stadium were affected by the uncertainty that hung over the future of that place.

Simon Lawson

Warm and windy conditions in Neath on Tuesday evening, 3rd June, were the setting as Simon Lawson, who recently set the new UK Half Marathon U20 record, completed a fantastic 10,000m race, smashed the standing Welsh Junior Record and beat the European Junior Championships Qualifying standard. Both Lawson and Dewi Griffiths went below the 30:40 time set as a benchmark for consideration for the GB team competing in the Euros this summer - an impressive achievement for the two youngsters. His time takes Simon to second place in the latest European rankings.

SSAFA Road Race results Saturday 23 May 2009

Road running

The first of this year’s series of the annual SSAFA 5K road races was held last Wednesday, 20th May around Cardiff’s beautiful Bute Park and Blackweir fields. The race is organized in aid of the Soldiers, Sailors and Air Force Association and all income from entry fees goes towards the association’s charities. The field of 86 runners was small in number but high in quality and some thought that the course record of 14m21 would be threatened.
