Fourth Gwent League Monday 12 February 2018

U15 Brecon

The fourth round of the 2017-18 Gwent Cross Country League was held at Pontypool Park yesterday in freezing conditions with snow and wind as well as the challenge of the most hilly course that many of the athletes will have encountered.

Although the team was depleted owing to the Welsh indoor junior championships and the Welsh 10k road championship on the same weekend, 56 Cardiff athletes all represented the club with pride and strength; and all of them finished their races when there was a large number who did not, so every Cardiff athlete should hold his or her head high.

Welsh junior championships Sunday 11 February 2018

Harvey Reynolds and Aaron Jolly

Cardiff AAC vests were on display yesterday at the first day of the Welsh Athletics junior championships held at Cardiff's NIAC and plenty of championships medals were won including thirteen golds.

The Reynolds brothers achieved a family double with Jacob dominating the under 15 boys' 1500m and then watching older brother Ben score an equally convincing win in the under 17 boys' 1500m, the next race on the track. James Vincent was an easy winner of the under 20 men's 1500 and Jeremiah Azu was a clear winner of the under 20 men's 60m.

British best for Jake Monday 5 February 2018

Jake Heyward 2018

Cardiff's Jake Heyward, the current European under 20 1500m champion, broke Ian Stewart's under 20 3000m indoor record at NIAC yesterday.

Jake's time, rounded down to the official 8:00.93, shaved Ian's previous record of 8:01.4 set in 1968.

Ian Stewart went on to become one of Britain's most successful middle distance runners and, with the world junior championships taking place in Finland in July, Jake could not have got 2018 off to a better start.

Fifty years as Cardiff AAC Thursday 18 January 2018

The year 2018 marks fifty years since two relatively small clubs joined together to become one of the most important in Britain.

Roath Harriers had been founded in 1882 as a "harrier" club and became one of the leading Welsh clubs. A few other local clubs sprang up in Cardiff, including Birchgrove Harriers in the early 1950s. The two clubs shared Maindy Stadium and, in 1968 decided to amalgamate. Thus Cardiff AAC came into being and the rest is history.  

Off to Patagonia Monday 15 January 2018

Morgan James 2 and Larry Ryan 2017

Cardiff's Morgan James (16) has earned himself the experience of a lifetime by gaining selection for a select group of Welsh schoolchildren who will spend two weeks in Patagonia in October later this year.

Patagonia is, of course, a region of Argentina in South America which was settled by Welsh emigrants in the nineteenth century and where Welsh is still spoken.
