Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one


Thursday 26 July 2018

Cardiff's team for the YDL AREA FINAL in Newport on Sunday, has the lowest number of athletes who are competing. 

Debbie Bull U17/U20M, requires athletes to contact her ASAP.

Jennifer Stone U17/20W, urgently needs endurance runners with many events without A or B string athletes. Also U20W throwers are required.

Gail Gaskin needs U17 hurdlers, only 1 100mH and 1 300mH so far. Also only has 1l U17 High Jumper.

In the Area Final, only first 2 teams qualify for final at Bedford in August. Strong teams are taking part, including:-

Birchfield Harriers

Rugby & Northampton

Team Avon

Team DC

Team managers main problem besides athletes on holidays, is the closure of the stadium while refurbishment of the inner field area and track takes place. Team managers do not have normal face to face contact with athletes, as athlete groups are training at different locations, in the Cardiff & Vale area.

A recent great team result by our YDL lower age group, with reduced numbers taking part, finished 2nd. Sunday's UK weather forecast is rain, no sun bathing weather, never a problem in competing, just like the last match at Exeter, when the team had a good result. Please support your club Volunteer Team Manager.
