Indoor medals haul Sunday 10 January 2016

Jacob Reynolds 2016

On a day when it was far better to be competing indoors than out, Cardiff athletes turned out in force for part two of the under 13, under 15 and under 17 Welsh regional championships at the NIAC yesterday, 9th January.

The star performance of the day was Jacob Reynold's huge win in the under 13 boys' 800m, setting a new Welsh record of 2:20.52. Jacob is still only 11.

The under 17 boys and girls were particularly successful with clean sweeps of all the medals in the 800m and 1500m (both boys and girls).

The cold and damp conditions did not spoil the enthusiasm of the numerous Cardiff athletes who travelled to Mountain Ash for the popular annual Nos Galan road races.

With former Cardiff star Colin Jackson as the mystery runner, the races saw plenty of Cardiff successes.

The age 10/11 boys saw  a clean sweep of medals through Jacob Reynolds (1st), Rhys Blow (2nd) and Ben Vincent (3rd), while Charlotte Arter won the senior women's race in  a course record time. Charlotte recently placed 8th in an international cross  country race in Belgium where she was representing England.

Cardiff AAC is very fortunate to have so many people who are willing to give up their time to fill important positions and without whom the club could not carry on.

Volunteering in this way can be very rewarding and we are grateful to everyone of them.

We can always do with more and are currently looking for volunteers who would be interested to act as -  press and PR liaison, volunteer coordinator, and minutes secretary for the general committee (which meets on the first Tuesday of each month).

British best for Bethan Tuesday 15 December 2015

Bethan Davies 2015

Cardiff's Bethan Davies (pictured with club mascot Hawthorn) set a new British best ever time for the 3,000m walk indoors at the Cardiff Met GP1 series at the NIAC on Sunday last, 13th December.

Bethan's time of 12:46.77 was a big improvement on the previous British best, 13:08.64, also set in Cardiff, in 2002. It is the first time a British athlete has gone under the 13 minutes barrier.

Bethan's performance was the highlight of the day.

Indoor Championships Sunday 13 December 2015

Indoor Ch 2015

The first day of the Welsh Athletics indoor regional championships was held yesterday, 12th December at Cardiff's NIAC, with Cardiff athletes winning plenty of medals.

Win for South Wales Sunday 13 December 2015


The South Wales cross country team saw off the opposition to win the Welsh Athletics inter-regional championships at Builth Wells yesterday, 12th December.

With the weather conditions somewhat different from those experienced at the indoor championships, also held yesterday, Cardiff athletes contributed important points to the South Wales win.

In the senior ladies' race, Cardiff's Rhianwedd Price, sister Ffion and Lucy Marland were the first three to finish, although Rhianwedd and Ffion were wearing East Wales vests.

Third Gwent League Sunday 6 December 2015

Gwent League 2015

After the huge turnout at Llandaff Fields a couple of weeks ago, a much smaller group of Cardiff athletes travewlled to Blaise Castle, Bristol for the third round of the Gwent League.

The conditions meant that  the athletes had to deal with running into a very strong wind right from the start, which really took it out of them and even the best athletes were affected. Nevertheless, the athletes that were there produced some excellent individual performances, although the overall team scores suffered.

The weather was so blustery that on arrival it was decided not to put the tent up and just take shelter under the huge oak tree next to the café. This proved the right thing to do as later in the day several tents were lifted off the ground and blown around.

Mike Kallenberg 8th Saturday 5 December 2015

Mike Kallenberg

Cardiff's Mike Kallenberg, making his debut in a Great Britain vest, finished an excellent eighth in the inaugural 50k world championships in Doha, Qatar, yesterday, 4th December.

To avoid high temperatures, the race started at 6 o'clock in the evening and Mike's finishing time was 3:02:01. The winner was an American, followed by three Kenyans.

Mike's British team mate Michael Crawley did not finish.
