Charlotte again Sunday 29 November 2015

Charlotte Arter 2015

Cardiff's Charlotte Arter continued her run of excellent form in Liverpool yesterday with a fine 12th position out of 291 finishers in the senior women's race at the British Cross Challenge - the highest quality of the series so far as places in the British team for the European Cross Country Championships were being decided. In the same race, Jessica Hegarty finished 79th overall and 28th in the under 23 category.

Other notable performances came from Jonathon Hopkins (44th out of 574 in the senior men's race), Abi Fisher (25th out of 95 in the under 15 girls' race), Ben and Jacob Reynolds (16th and 20th respectively in the under 13 boys' race) and Naomi Reid (26th in the under 17 women's race).

Relay glory for Cardiff Sunday 22 November 2015

Jon Hopkins 2015

At today's Welsh Cross Country Relay Championships, held in cold but otherwise perfect conditions in Bridgend, Cardiff fielded numerous teams and finished in medal positions in almost every age group.

The senior women's and men's teams brought the day to a perfect finish to win both championships, Charlotte Arter bringing the ladies home to a comfortable win and Jon Hopkins running a stunning last leg to take the team from third to first place.

Helen is the new President Friday 20 November 2015

Helen James

At last night's Annual General Meeting, Helen James was elected the new President of Cardiff AAC, following Bernie Plain who had completed  his two year term.

Speaking after her election, Helen said that, having joined the club when she was 15, she could never have expected, one day, to be its President. She regarded it as a great honour.

Helen is only the second woman, after Kay James, to be President.

Big win for Charlotte Tuesday 17 November 2015

Charlotte Arter 2015

Cardiff's Charlotte Arter (pictured at the UKWAL this summer) pulled off an important victory in the Leeds Abbey Dash 10k in Leeds on Sunday last, 15th November.

In only her second 10k since 2012, she beat a quality field of British women to win in a personal best time of 33:03.

Now back living in Cardiff after completing her studies in the USA, we can look forward to further improvements from Charlotte.

Cardiff leading the field Wednesday 11 November 2015

On a perfect day for cross country, dry and cool and a little muddy underfoot, the second round of the Gwent Cross Country League was held in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields last Sunday, 8th November.

With more than a hundred and twenty Cardiff athletes taking part, it was great to see so many club vests on display. And with Cardiff athletes prominent in all the age groups, there are 10 team medals up for grabs, with the club leading in four categories.
