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.

Steady start for senior women Monday 11 May 2015


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.

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.
