It was a worthwhile journey to Manchester on Saturday last, 30th May, for several Cardiff athletes to take part in the British Milers Club Grand Prix.

Personal best times were recorded by Jake Heyward (1:52.19 for 800m), John Cove (3:51.82 for 1500m) and new member (and New Zealand international) Katherine Marshall (2:04.42 for 800m) as well as a seasonal best for Ffion Price of 4:22.58 for 1500m.

Kevin Seaward was just outside his best for the 5000m with 14:20.89.

YDL Juniors march on Monday 1 June 2015

Jay Morse 2014

The second round of this year's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) was held at Bath University track on Saturday last, 30th May and, although not quite matching its winning performance in the first round, Cardiff's team remains on course for a place in the final later in the season.

Making a big contribution to Cardiff's second place score, Jay Morse won three events, including a club record in the under 15 boys'discus where his winning throw of 48.87m was a massive 5m better than his previous best and took him to No.1 on the latest UK rankings - matching big brother Brett. Jay also won the A hammer competition and the B shot put (the latter with another personal best).

The summer season is now in full flow with plenty of competitions to think about.

On Saturday, the club's UK YDL team travels to Bath for the second round of this year's series. After topping the first round, the team will want to maintain its winning streak; to make the national final in Birmingham on 5th September would be a real feather in the caps of all those athletes who make it possible.

Medal haul at Newport Sunday 24 May 2015

Jonathon Bailey

On a near perfect day, Cardiff athletes turned out in force at the combined South and East Wales Regional Championships held at Newport yesterday, 23 May; and produced a medal count to match.

Amongst numerous personal bests and championship best performances an intriguing high jump competition saw under 17 winner Charlie Pegrum (16) push under 20 winner Tom Trotman (17) to a big new personal best of 1.98m who, in turn, pushed senior men's winner Jonathon Bailey (19) to his personal best of 2.03m.

Brett and Ciaran win Monday 18 May 2015

Brett Morse and Ciaran Lewis were both winners over the weekend.

Brett was part of the Welsh squad at the Loughborough International on Sunday, 18th, and got his season off to a strong start with a winning discus throw of 63.42m, taking him immediately to the top of the UK rankings.

Ciaran was part of a two man South Wales team that took the bronze medal at the UK Inter-Counties under 18 fell running championships at Bettws Y Coed on Saturday. Ciaran received the gold medal as the race winner with Cardiff team mate Sam Curwen 16th.

YDL at Cardiff Sunday 17 May 2015

Kristian Jones 2015

The UK Youth Development League (U20/U17) returned to Cardiff yesterday, 17th May, and on a sunny day that was spoiled only by a strong headwind in the finishing straight. Cardiff finished fourth of the six competing clubs.

The Cardiff team had been heavily depleted by absences because of examinations but those that were looking for a breather from revision produced some excellent performances. Particularly noticable was Kristian Jones' 100/200 double win including a fine 10.97 100m into a minus 1.8 wind.

Off Track successes Tuesday 12 May 2015

Ciaran Lewis 2015

Whilst our track and field teams were out in force over the last weekend, the Welsh Trail Running championships (short course) were being held in conjunction with the Porthkerry 5 on Sunday, 10th May.

In excellent conditions at a beautiful venue, Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis retained the senior men's title he won last year, in a time that improved his best by 41 seconds.

Elsewhere, Cardiff's Irish international Kevin Seaward was 15th in the Great Manchester Run, with a personal best time of 29:54 for the 10k distance.

Cardiff's senior women's team has made a steady start to its campaign in Division 1 of the UK Women's Athletic League, having won promotion from Division 2 last year. The first match of the season was held in Derby yesterday, 10th May.

Finishing sixthh of the eight clubs, only 4.5 points behind fifth placed Trafford AC and well clear of seventh placed Bristol & West AC, Cardiff is well placed to maintain its position in this higher division.

Record turn-out of juniors Monday 11 May 2015

Bethan Gammon 2015

More than 100 young Cardiff athletes made the journey to Hereford on Saturday last, 9th May, for the first round of this year's Welsh Under 15 League.

Fortunately, the weather was fine and dry, although a blustery, cold wind made conditions difficult for athletes and spectators alike.

Cardiff's athletes produced numerous personal best performances on an excellent day for the club.
