Road Relay 2016

After the spring-like weather in Cardiff on Saturday, winter returned for the Welsh Road Relay championships held in Bargoed's Parc Cwm Darran yesterday, 10th April.

Despite a bitterly cold, strong and gusting wind that faced the runners for half the lap and made running into it very challenging, Cardiff teams ended the day with two sets of team gold medals, one of silver and one of bronze.

Better late than never Monday 11 April 2016

Although Cardiff AAC has a very talented group of young athletes, the older ones can win medals too.

After a delay in compiling the results, the Cardiff Master Women 45 ladies' team has been awarded the gold medals at the Welsh Cross Country Championships, held in Swansea on 27th February.

Congratulations to Helen John, Cerys Ash and Jen Stone.

Run Jump Throw a success Sunday 10 April 2016

RJT 2016

The weather was kind, with sunshine and a light wind, the athletes enjoyed it and the organisation was good.

The first edition of the Run Jump Throw competition for under 15 athletes was held yesterday at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium and was a welcome first of the season event.

Time to pay Thursday 7 April 2016

The bad news is that Welsh Athletics registration fees were due on 1st April and, unless they are paid, athletes will not be able to compete. UKA Athletics has made it a condition that all athletes in the UK must be registered in order to compete so, with the summer season upon us, this needs to be done straight away.

Coaches in the USA Wednesday 6 April 2016

Steve Bailey and Derrick Stephenson, two of Cardiff's coaches, are currently enjoying the chance to mix with the best at the ALTIS centre in Arizona.

Along with Steve Boyles and former Cardiff AAC decathlete Fran Baker, they have been funded by Welsh Athletics and are there to make the most of this great opportunity.

CISS

At long last, the responsibility for Cardiff International Sports Stadium has today been transferred from Cardiff City Council to Cardiff and Vale College.

The College has overall responsibility for the site but has sub-contracted the external sports areas (track, artificial pitch, rugby pitches, etc.) to House of Sport, which is based off Sloper Road and is connected with Cardiff City Football Club.

Paula meets Jen's Joggers Thursday 31 March 2016

Paula Radcliffe and Jens Joggers 2016

A week ago, in the build-up to the world half marathon championships, world record holder and marathon legend Paula Radcliffe was due to join Jen's Joggers, amongst others, for a three mile run around Cardiff.

Unfortunately, traffic on the M4 prevented Paula from joining the runners (perhaps she was secretly worried about the likely pace) but she made it to the Hilton Hotel in time for a general discussion about running and her own career.

Cardiff at the top Thursday 24 March 2016

U15 Brecon

The Gwent Cross Country League has confirmed that Cardiff AAC was a clear winner of the overall junior club trophy, with Westbury Harriers second and Carmarthen Harriers third.

Cardiff won medals in no fewer than eight of the ten categories (under 11 to under 20) that count for the junior trophy and finished multiple teams in most; there were six Cardiff teams classified in the under 13 girls' category and four in the under 15 boys'..

Congratulations to all the athletes and team managers for such a magnificent result.

Ciaran Lewis 2015

After a long journey by coach on Friday last, the Welsh teams were greeted with sunshine and good conditions for the annual SIAB/Welsh Athletics cross country international in Falkirk on Saturday last, 19th March.

With numerous Cardiff athletes in the teams, it was a final opportunity to test themselves against the best.

The best result of the day came from consistent Ciaran Lewis with a fine fifth place in the under 20 home countries international. Jake Heyward, representing Welsh Schools, was eleventh in the same race.
