Goodbye Kay Wednesday 15 October 2014

Kay James

Cardiff AAC is very sad to learn of the passing earlier today of Kay James after a short illness.

Kay, with her late husband John, joined the club in 1981 with their children, Philip and Helen. Both John and Kay quickly became involved in the organisational side of the club and held many important roles.

Over the 33 years since she joined, Kay became a key member of the club and was general secretary for 11 years from 1993 to 2003. She was a Life Member and was President for two years from 2011.

First Gwent League Monday 13 October 2014

Cross Country 2013 under 13

The first round of this season's Gwent Cross Country League, held in Bridgend yesterday on a bright and sunny day, but later with a chilly wind, saw around 100 Cardiff athletes, including many 'first timers' competing in all the age groups.

The best performers were John Cove, who came home in second place in the under 20 men's race, and Kate Seary and Naomi Reid who both finished third in their respective races, the under 20 women and the under 15 girls.

Welsh Award for Kath Elias Saturday 11 October 2014

Kath Elias

Long serving and popular club member Kath Elias is the 2014 Welsh Athletics Volunteer of the Year and will receive her award from Welsh Athletics at their annual dinner at the Radisson Blu hotel in Cardiff on 15th November.

This award is very well deserved as Kath has put in a prodigious amount of work over many years for the club, for Welsh Schools and Welsh Athletics.

Road Relay success Friday 10 October 2014

Road Relay team Abi Fisher Naomi Reid Annwen Gammo

A small but classy under 15 girls team travelled to Birmingham's Sutton Park last Sunday, 5th October, to take part in the National Young Athletes road relay championship.

Up against 79 of the best teams in Britain, the Cardiff team of Annwen Gammon, Naomi Reid and Abigail Fisher finished in an excellent 9th place.

Ieuan's debut and team win Monday 6 October 2014

Ieuan Thomas 2014 half marathon

Cardiff's Ieuan Thomas produced an outstanding debut run in the Cardiff Half Marathon yesterday, 5th October, to finish in 7th place in the excellent time of 65:40 minutes.

A delighted Ieuan said after the race that “it was an amazing experience, I wore my Cardiff vest so the crowd would know who I was and they gave me a major boost. It was unbelievable. Hopefully this is the start of even better things to come.” 

The icing on the cake was that Cardiff AAC won the team race, which counts as this year's British championship.
