Mud, glorious mud Sunday 14 February 2016

The fourth round of the Gwent Cross Country League was held in Monmouth yesterday. On a cold day with constant drizzle, the course quickly churned up to provide all the runners with generous coverings of mud; none more so than Morgan James who took a tumble and finished completely covered. He still finished fourth.

Cardiff had a good turnout of runners with high finishers although only Carys Bill finished first; in the under 15 girls race.

A reminder to all athletes to take care when training at Cardiff International Stadium (and elsewhere).

Rules on the use of the track can be seen on the wall at the entrance to the track and these MUST be followed.

You should NOT cross the grass central area as throwing implements (javelin, hammer and/or discus) are dangerous.

Do not warm up on the inside two lanes.

Be alert and careful.

2016

The series of indoor Welsh championships came to an end at Cardiff's NIAC yesterday, 31st January, and Cardiff athletes were once again to the fore in the medal lists.

Two grand slams of medals were achieved, in the senior men's 800m and 1500m. The final of the 800m saw a thrilling drive for the line with hardly the thickness of a vest covering Tom Marshall (first), Alex Coomber (second) and Carl Hill (third).The 1500m was more clear cut, with winner Matthew Edwards easily heading James Thie (second) and Stephen Morris (third). Stephen improved his own T20 British 1500m record with 4:01.05.

On Saturday 23rd, the third Cardiff Met indoor GP was held at Cardiff's NIAC and yesterday, 24th, cross country took centre stage with the British Athletics Cross Challenge at Blackweir.

With heavy overnight rain, the course at Blackweir was muddy and heavy but, fortunately, the weather stayed dry and the conditions were not too bad (it was cross country!).

Cardiff athletes were to the fore in most of the races with Ciaran Lewis (5th in the under 20 men) and Carys Bill (5th in the under 15 girls) the highest placers.
