Congratulations Charlotte.

Gwent League 4 Monday 2 February 2015

WA XC Ch 2013 Senior Men

The fourth Gwent League Cross Country match is on Sunday next February 8th at Blaise Castle in Bristol. The course is relatively flat so will be another easy course for everyone to have a go at.

Cardiff AAC is leading the team scores for under 15 boys, under 20 men and under 17 women and is well placed in most of the other age groups so a good turn out on Sunday will help to consolidate or improve these positions before the final round of the season.
