Off to a flying start Saturday 7 May 2016

Gareth Warburton to Rhys Williams 2016

After the disappointment of relegation last season, Cardiff's senior men's team got this year's campaign off to a flying start with a resounding win at today's first round match in Cardiff.

On a generally fine day (interrupted by one rain-shower) but with a gusting wind, Cardiff led throughout the day and finished 46 points ahead of second placed Swansea. An excellent all-round team performance included several outstanding individual personal bests including those from Kristian Jones, Anax Da Silva, Jake Heyward, Simeon Clarence and Ciaran Lewis.

The general committee of the club has issued a Code of Conduct that applies to all members as well as to parents of members.

The club has traditionally been a harmonious organisation with all those involved respecting and supporting each other and contributing to the furtherance of the high standing and quality of Cardiff AAC and its athletes. This is the ethos of a voluntary organisation and the vast majority of members and friends understand and demonstrate this spirit.

WJL April 16

Although thankfully the rain stayed away for most of the day, it was cold with a sharp wind for the first round of the Welsh Under 15 League in Cardiff last Saturday, 30th April.

With the lead changing during the day, Cardiff eventually settled for second place a mere 34 points behind Cardiff Archers; the same result as in the first round last year before Cardiff went on to win the overall title. 

Cardiff at BUCS Tuesday 3 May 2016

Numerous Cardiff AAC athletes were representing their universities at the BUCS championships in Bedford from 30 April to 3 May.

Getting his outdoor season off to a good start, with two clockings under 14 seconds, David Omoregie took the gold medal in the final of the 110m hurdles in 13.74.

Bronze medallist in the hammer throw, Jac Palmer was close to his personal best with 62.66m and will surely take Matthew Richards' club record of 64.17m this year.

Solid start for YDL campaign Monday 2 May 2016

Cardiff's upper age group UK Youth Development League team set off at 6am yesterday for the long trip to Plymouth and produced a steady opening performance, finishing in fourth place behind three composite teams.

The early matches in this league are traditionally beset with availability problems and this year was no exception. Revision for exams and injuries are typical issues but this match also suffered from a clash with the BUCS championships in Bedford and a BMC meeting being held in Millfield on Monday.

Close second for Jake Sunday 24 April 2016

Jake Heyard Minimarathon 2016

As they entered the Mall approaching the finish, Cardiff's Jake Heyward and Stroud's Tom Mortimer were shoulder to shoulder and it appeared that Jake would have the edge until a sprint over the final 20m pushed him into second place by the smallest of margins, but well ahead of the third placed.

The mini marathon, held over the final three miles of the London Marathon course, is of high quality and a second placing is an excellent performance from Jake. Unfortunately he just missed out on a meeting with Prince Harry who was presenting the awards to the winners.

The races counted as the British Championships and, in the under 15 girls' race, Kiara Frizelle was an outstanding third, followed closely by Abi Fisher in sixth and Carys Bill in 20th.

The challenge is on Sunday 24 April 2016

Carter Staples Jav 2016

Having just pipped Swansea for the divisional title last year, Cardiff's UK Young Athletes League (U15/U13) had to settle for third place in the season's opening round at Newport on Saturday 23rd April.

Missing some of its more experienced athletes who have moved up an age group and with points machine Carter Staples injured (but filling in to throw the javelin and put the shot - that's team spirit), Cardiff nevertheless scored numerous wins and, with three more rounds to come and not many points separating the top three teams, should move up the table.

Excellent Road Relay results Sunday 17 April 2016

6 stage team 2016

Cardiff's senior men's and women's road relay teams produced excellent performances in the National 12 and 6 stage championships in Birmingham yesterday, finishing 11th (out of 67 teams) and 12th (out of 50 teams) respectively.

Oustanding individual performances included Charlotte Arter's third fastest long leg and Kath Marshall's sixth fastest short leg.

And a special mention for veteran Nat Lane who celebrated his 40th birthday a week ago and brought the men's team home on the final leg.
