Lucy Marland 2016

With the second round of the Gwent League in Brecon on Saturday, the Cross Challenge in Milton Keynes the same day and an international in Spain, Cardiff AAC had athletes competing in all three.

Clashes as well as illnesses meant that numbers at the Gwent League were down on the first round but there was still much to celebrate as the South Wales regional championships were incorporated and Cardiff athletes did well, with Jess Wadey, Morgan James, Bethan Evans, Jac Smith, Lucy Marland and Carwyn Jones all winning gold medals.

While his team mates were racing over the country Cardiff's Mike Kallenberg was representing Great Britain on Friday in the world 50k road race championships in the heat of Doha, where he finished an excellent sixth, a placing which improved both his position and time from last year’s 50k championships. Following an assured performance, 25-year-old Mike commented: "That was really tough tonight but I'm happy with my run and delighted that we are coming home with a silver medal."

Meanwhile, back on the country, the Cross Challenge took place on Saturday in Milton Keynes. The best performance came from Ryan Edwards in the under 13 boys' race where he finished an excellent second. The under 13 girls' race saw Eden Williams finish in eighth place while Nia Clatworthy was 14th in the under 15 girls' event.
