Gwent League 2014

After a gap for Christmas, the Gwent League resumes on Saturday 13th February when the fourth round of the 2015-16 series will be held in Monmouth. This is a new venue for the Gwent League and athletes are advised to arrive early in order to walk the course and familiarise themselves with it.

This has been a successful series for Cardiff so far with individuals and teams in medal winning positions in most of the age categories.

Safety First Thursday 4 February 2016


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.

More Welsh champions Monday 1 February 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.

Grants success Thursday 28 January 2016


As a mark of the potential talent of Cardiff's young athletes, six have been awarded development grants by the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund.

Grants are specifically aimed at helping young athletes who have shown above average talent and Cardiff athletes usually feature in the annual lists.

Outdoors and In Monday 25 January 2016

Naomi Reid 2016

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. 

Six Cardiff athletes for Wales Friday 22 January 2016


Wales takes on England in the British Cross Country Challenge in Cardiff's Blackweir on Sunday next, 24th January, and Cardiff AAC is represented in every age group team.

Jonathan Hopkins and Lucy Marland are in the senior men's and women's teams respectively while Jack Gooch and Jessica Hegarty are in the under 23 teams and Ciaran Lewis and Megan Bowen are in the under 20 teams.

Charlotte second in Bermuda Tuesday 19 January 2016

Charlotte Arter 2015

Charlotte Arter's fine form earned her a trip to Bermuda for the annual Bermuda 10k on Sunday last, 17th January, where she finished the mixed race in 8th place and the second woman, in a time of 35:48, just behind England's Faye Fullerton (35:37). Also in the Bermuda 10k was Adam Bitchell who finished in fourth place in 33:22.

The day before, Charlotte and Adam had both taken part in high quality street mile races, Adam winning his in 4:26.5 and Charlotte placing fifth in 4:53.3.

Also avoiding Britain's weather is Katherine Marshall who set a new personal best time of 4:46.71 in winning the Cooks Classic one mile in New Zealand on Saturday last. Katherine comes from New Zealand and was representing her local club Te Awamutu.

More medals on day 2 Sunday 17 January 2016

Kiara Frizellee and Naomi Reid 2016

The Cardiff medal rush continued on the second day of the Welsh Athletics junior indoor championships with a number of Cardiff athletes also adding to their medals won on day one.

One of the classiest performances came again from Kristian Jones who not only added the 200m gold to that of the 60m he won yesterday but, with a blistering run from the outside lane, demolished his indoor personal best with a time of 21.76 secs., not far off his outdoor best for the distance. In the field, Tom Trotman set a lifetime best of 2.00m with a first time clearance to win the under 20 men's high jump.

Carys tops the bill Saturday 16 January 2016

Carys Bill 2016

Cardiff's Carys Bill led from the gun to dominate the under 17 women's 3000m at day one of the Welsh junior age groups indoor championships at the NIAC in Cardiff.

But Carys's was just one of numerous excellent Cardiff performances, with medals and personal bests coming thick and fast.
