In the McCain Liverpool Cross Challenge yesterday, Sunday 28th November, Cardiff's Adam Bitchell (569), who is a student at UWIC, was looking for a top 6 finish to book a place in the Great Britain Under 20 team for the European Cross Country Championships in Portugal in December.

The coaching conference to be held on Sunday next, 5th December, at Cardiff's National Indoor Athletics Centre (NIAC) has extended the closing date for applications to 30th November - TUESDAY NEXT.
The conference will cover a wide range of events, with well known expert speakers as well as practical sessions.
2010 has certainly been an outstanding year for Cardiff AAC with team and individual highlights coming thick and fast.
The big question was whether the club’s teams could match their great results of the year before. The Young Athletes’ League team could expect to find it tougher in the higher division whereas the British League team would do well to hold its place in the National Division 1, being newly promoted. On the other hand, the UK Women’s League team wanted to get back into Division 1 and the National Junior League team also wanted to regain its place in the league proper.
