Cardiff AAC teams collected medals in all age groups except senior women at the annual Welsh road relay championships, held at a dry but bitterly cold Llandow race circuit yesterday, 17th March.

Gold medals went to the under 13 girls team (Annwen Gammon, Caitlin Exton, Amber Harding and Lucy Dennis) and senior men (Jon Peters, Jon Hopkins, Tom Marshall and Carwyn Jones) whilst Sophia Vella won the under 11 girls straight race.

Fastest legs of the day were recorded by Lucy Dennis, Kate Seary and Jon Hopkins.

A Winning Night Sunday 17 March 2013

Race Night March 2013

Around a hundred Cardiff AAC members and friends gathered on Friday night, 15th March, for an evening of "horse racing" and enjoyment at the Cardiff High School Old Boys Club in Whitchurch.

Secretary Ann Cooper and husband Tony had organised the occasion to raise funds for the club and it was a great success, with Barclays Bank matching pound for pound what the club generated, pushing the total for the evening to a magnificent £1600.

 

Mike Ward in GB team Tuesday 12 March 2013

Mike Ward

Cardiff's promising junior athlete Mike Ward (pictured in his South Wales vest finishing the Inter Counties Championship) has crowned a fine series of cross country performances (Welsh champion, Schools champion, 6th at the UK Inter Counties) by gaining his first Great Britain representative vest.

Mike will be one of the GB team announced today to contest the World Junior Cross Country Championship in Bydgoszcz, Poland, on Sunday 24th March.

Congratulations Mike and good luck in Poland.

All comers record for Tom Monday 11 March 2013

Tom Marshall in 12 stage 2008

Numerous Cardiff AAC athletes were at the NIAC arena yesterday, 10th March, for the Welsh Under 20 Indoor International and Senior Grand Prix.

Cardiff's Tom Marshall (pictured) ran close to the 4 minute barrier in smashing the old Welsh all-comers' indoor record for the mile with a time of 4:03.96. (His personal best indoors is 4:00.74 set in the USA.)

Joe Thomas, fresh from representing Great Britain in the European Indoor Championships, took the 600m in a time of 1:18.40. David Omoregie set a new personal best of 7.76 to win the under 20 men's 60m hurdles and added third place in the long jump with 6.90m. Elliott Slade won the under 20 1500m and Megan O'Sullivan took the under 20 women's triple jump with a leap of 11.83m, only 3cms off her own Welsh record. 

Breakthrough for Mike Saturday 9 March 2013

Mike Ward

Mike Ward fully justified his selection as February's athlete of the month with a fine run in the under 20 men's race at the UK Inter Counties championships in Birmingham today, held over a muddy course but in otherwise good conditions.

Always in touch with the leaders, a mud spattered Mike finished strongly in sixth place, an excellent position amongst the cream of British cross country runners.

The event doubles as the selection trials for the British teams to take part in the World Cross Country championships to be held in Poland in two weeks time and we wait to see if Mike's performance today has won him a place.

Fancy a flutter? Wednesday 6 March 2013

Bucking bronco


Why not come along to an evening of "horse racing" at the Cardiff High School Old Boys club house on Forest Farm Road, Velindre Road, Whitchurch, Cardiff CF14 7JH on Friday 15th March (a week this Friday)?

 

The evening has been organised by club secretary Ann Cooper and her husband Tony and we are already assured of a good attendance; but we would like even more.

 

All monies raised will be put towards the club's running costs. Did you realise that teams travelling alone cost over £14,000 last year?

Sunshine for Gwent League Tuesday 5 March 2013

U15 Brecon

The final round of the 2012-13 Gwent Cross Country League was held last Saturday, 2nd March. It was a gorgeous spring day in Brecon, compared to the freezing temperatures of the previous week, and many people stayed around to support the Cardiff AAC runners in the sunshine.

 

With several absentees preparing for the following week's national inter-counties championship in Birmingham, we had one individual winner in the shape of John Cove in the Under 17 men’s race and several second places.
