Inter Counties Cross Country Saturday 12 March 2016

Ciaran Lewis 2016

Several Cardiff athletes challenged the best in Britain today at the UK Inter Counties championships in Birmingham.

On a fine day with little wind and on a course that was a mixture of dry surfaces and mud, and included a testing uphill stretch, to come in the first hundred was pretty good, to come in the first fifty very good and in the first twenty excellent.

Ciaran Lewis set the standard in the first race of the day, finishing tenth in the under 20 men's race; and Carys Bill matched that in the under 13 girls' race, both producing outstanding runs.

Congratulations Tim Friday 11 March 2016

There was a new addition to the Fry family last Friday when Tim's wife Hannah gave birth to their first child Elliot.

To welcome the birth, Tim's coaching group last night presented him with some gifts for Elliot.

Tim and Hannah can look forward to some sleepless nights but everything is fine.

Congratulations to Tim and Hannah.

Another record for Bethan Tuesday 8 March 2016

Bethan Davies 2015

It seems that Cardiff's Bethan Davies cannot get out of the habit of breaking records.

On Saturday last, 6th March, she won the gold medal at the England Athletics 10k race walking championship in a new Welsh Record time of 44:59 and moved up to second on the all-time UK rankings behind Johanna Atkinson's leading time of 43:52, set in 2010.

Only a couple of weeks ago, in Cardiff, Bethan set a new UK indoor record for the 3k walk.

Final Gwent League Sunday 6 March 2016

Carys Bill 2016

On a course that was surrounded by snowcapped mountains, the final round of the season's Gwent League was held in Brecon yesterday, 5th March, in sunny and thankfully dry conditions although with a bitingly cold wind.

Despite a lower than usual turnout (the senior men and women were particularly disappointing), Cardiff's junior athletes were to the fore in most of the age groups, with Carys Bill, Jessica Heggarty and Ciaran Lewis winning their races with ease. James Vincent and Laura Wright were also age group winners within combined races.

Academy goes indoors Friday 4 March 2016


On Monday 15th February, over fifty Cardiff Academy athletes assembled at the House of Sport for an evening of sportshall athletics.

The event was kindly supported by Welsh Athletics and all the academy coaches, who even dusted off their spikes for a ‘coaches against the athletes relay'. Needless to say, the athletes won.

Final Gwent League Wednesday 2 March 2016

Blaise Castle XC 2012

The final round of this season's Gwent Cross Country League takes place at Penlan Leisure Centre, Brecon on Saturday next, 5th March.

With Cardiff AAC well placed for lots of individual and team honours, we need a big turn out in order to end the season in style.

If you have not yet informed your team manager that you will be running, please do so straightaway.
