Good start in Gwent League Tuesday 11 October 2011

Andrew Hunt

There was a good turnout of Cardiff athletes in the first of the season's Gwent Cross Country League, held on Sunday last, 9th October, at Bridgend. In generally dry but drizzly and muddy conditions, Cardiff vests were to the fore in all the races, with former club captain Debbie Rees taking second place in the senior ladies' race. Charlotte Artur, wearing her UWIC vest, was third and it was good to see Gwenno Brown (representing Bristol University) seventh. In the senior men's race, Andrew Hunt (pictured) was the first Cardiff athlete to finish, in fifth place, with Alex Hains close behind in eighth. Joe Thomas, making a rare foray over the country, was 23rd.

The first fixture is next Sunday, 9th October and will take place in Newbridge Fields, Bridgend. Those who wish to take part must inform the relevant team manager as soon as possible.

Commonwealth Medal for Nat Sunday 25 September 2011

Nat Lane on right

Cardiff's Nat Lane (pictured, right, on the victory podium) took third place and the bronze medal in the inaugural Commonwealth Trail Running Championship held in Anglesey today, 25th September. Held over a multi terrain course of some 55k, including a stretch along the beach, to come third in a field of approximately 100 runners from the Commonwealth is a fine achievement for Nat who was representing Wales. Former Cardiff stalwart Richie Gardiner, who is enjoying a spell of excellent form, went two better to take the gold medal with Andrew Davies second. Congratulations to both Nat and Richie.

Bright spots as team relegated Monday 29 August 2011

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's British Athletics League team slipped back into the BAL National Division 1 in the final match of the season at Newham on Saturday last, 27th August. Competition in the premiership has proved just too tough for both men's and women's teams, especially after the men's spectacular promotions in two successive season's, and a period of consolidation for what are still young and improving squads could be beneficial. It is a credit to the team and to team manager James Williams that they stuck it out to the end and, indeed, produced some good performances in the final match.
