Cardiff leading the field Wednesday 11 November 2015

On a perfect day for cross country, dry and cool and a little muddy underfoot, the second round of the Gwent Cross Country League was held in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields last Sunday, 8th November.

With more than a hundred and twenty Cardiff athletes taking part, it was great to see so many club vests on display. And with Cardiff athletes prominent in all the age groups, there are 10 team medals up for grabs, with the club leading in four categories.

Cardiff AAC is saddened to learn that Dave Hawthorn, a life member, coach and former team manager, passed away yesterday.

Just over a year ago Dave (69) had been diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease but was determined to carry on with his coaching and had been at the track as usual as recently as last Thursday. He was taken into hospital yesterday.

A busy weekend Sunday 8 November 2015

Cardiff athletes were out in force this weekend with competitions indoors and out. The second round of the Gwent League was held in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields whilst the multi-event athletes were competing for titles at the NIAC in Cardiff. And, on Saturday, a group of Cardiff cross country runners had travelled to Milton Keynes for the British Cross Challenge.

Cardiff Gwent League Thursday 5 November 2015

Gwent League 2014

The second round of this season's Gwent Cross Country League takes place in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields on Sunday next (first event at 12 noon) and, after making a great start in Bridgend on 11th October, Cardiff will hopefully exceed the record turnout last year.

All those intending to compete should, by now, have informed the relevant team managers but there is still time if you have left it late.

Contact your team manager straight away.

Second in Snowdon Monday 26 October 2015

Mike Kallenberg

Cardiff's Mike Kallenberg finished in second place in the tough Snowdon Marathon, held on Saturday last, 24th October.

The Snowdon is one of Britain's toughest marathons, ascending by 3000 feet over the 26+ miles course, and this year's event was held in heavy rain. 


Kallenberg held his form superbly over the closing miles, coming home a little over two mins back on Kent athlete John Gilbert (who set a new course record of 2:33.38) and barely 10 seconds outside of the old course record.

Another Gold for Aled Thursday 22 October 2015
