The 850 miles round trip to Scotland was well rewarded as Cardiff AAC's athletes all performed brilliantly and helped the Welsh team to medals in every age group of the British and Irish Junior mountain running championships, held in Achray forest, Aberfoyle, yesterday, 21st September.

King of the mountains was Ciaran Lewis who took the gold medal in the under 16 boys' age group and led the Welsh team to the bronze medals. Ciaran was the only non English athlete to get to the top of the podium as every other individual and all the team championships were won by English athletes.

Ciaran is pictured with the other Cardiff athletes (Ffion Price, Gwynant Jones and Rebecca Evans) in the Welsh team.
