Cardiff AAC offers warmest congratulations to Barrie Owen, President of Swansea Harriers AC, on his award of the M.B.E for services to athletics in Wales in the Queen's birthday honours, announced today.

Barrie has made a massive contribution to Welsh Athletics as well as to his club and this recognition is richly deserved and well overdue.

Many congratulations, Barrie.

What's going on? Wednesday 10 June 2015


Most people have now heard that changes are being planned for Cardiff International Sports Stadium – but what are they really - not just the rumours?

Here are the facts:

The stadium is owned by Cardiff Council which, in order to save money and avoid possible closure, has agreed to transfer the long-term management to a partnership that has been created between Cardiff and Vale College and House of Sport.

Senior women's team spirit Tuesday 9 June 2015

UKWAL June 2015

Cardiff's senior women showed great team spirit in their second round match of the UK Women's Athletic League held in Bristol on Sunday last, 7th June finishing in a creditable fifth place.

Cheered on by inspiring team manager Sharon Heveran, the team finished on a high note with a resounding victory in the 4x400m relay despite the fact that yteam captain Rhianon Linington-Payne sustained a pulled muscle in the 4x100m event (her fourth of the day) and was unable to run.

Cardiff's senior men's team travelled to Southampton on Saturday, 6th June, and, despite the heroic efforts of those who competed, finished in seventh place, slipping into overall eighth and at risk of relegation to Division 2 of the British Athletics League.

With two rounds to go, there is every chance of avoiding relegation and Cardiff certainly has the potential to put out a team that is not only capable of keeping its place in this division but of regaining a place in the Premier Division.

Welsh U15 team wins Sunday 7 June 2015

Isabel Breeden 2015

A record turn-out of Cardiff athletes (approximately 150) finished top of the table (just) in the second round match of the Welsh Athletics under 15 league, held yesterday, 6th June, in Newport. The league itself also enjoyed a record number of 535 athletes.

Cardiff AAC pipped Cardiff Archers into second place by 4 points, Cardiff amassing 1569 to Archers' 1564, with Newport Harriers in third place with 652.

Well done Welsh Athletics Thursday 4 June 2015


Welsh Athletics' Sprints Open meeting, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium last night was a great success and must surely be repeated on a regular basis.

The event was blessed with a beautiful summer's evening with a light following wind.

Such was the support from athletes that no fewer than 17 heats of the 100m were needed and 13 for the 200m. A second round of 100m races needed a further ten heats.

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 week ahead Thursday 28 May 2015

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.
