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.

Regional Championships Sunday 10 May 2009

Joe Thomas

Cardiff's athletes were prominent at the combined South and East Wales Regional Championships, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium yesterday, Saturday 9 May 2009. For a change, the weather was reasonably kind to the athletes, with sunshine all day but a cold wind that was strong at times. Joe Thomas produced a good early season 48.86s to win the senior men's 400m and Rhys Williams made a welcome return to competition, winning the 400m Hurdles in a quick 51.02s. Perhaps the best race of the day was the senior men's 200m which saw Matt Elias (thankfully fit and free of injury again) hold off rival Rhys Williams in a time of 22.05s. Cardiff athletes took a total of 66 titles.

Is athletics cleaner than snooker? The answers might surprise you. Read on...
