Close second for Jake Sunday 24 April 2016

Jake Heyard Minimarathon 2016

As they entered the Mall approaching the finish, Cardiff's Jake Heyward and Stroud's Tom Mortimer were shoulder to shoulder and it appeared that Jake would have the edge until a sprint over the final 20m pushed him into second place by the smallest of margins, but well ahead of the third placed.

The mini marathon, held over the final three miles of the London Marathon course, is of high quality and a second placing is an excellent performance from Jake. Unfortunately he just missed out on a meeting with Prince Harry who was presenting the awards to the winners.

The races counted as the British Championships and, in the under 15 girls' race, Kiara Frizelle was an outstanding third, followed closely by Abi Fisher in sixth and Carys Bill in 20th.

The challenge is on Sunday 24 April 2016

Carter Staples Jav 2016

Having just pipped Swansea for the divisional title last year, Cardiff's UK Young Athletes League (U15/U13) had to settle for third place in the season's opening round at Newport on Saturday 23rd April.

Missing some of its more experienced athletes who have moved up an age group and with points machine Carter Staples injured (but filling in to throw the javelin and put the shot - that's team spirit), Cardiff nevertheless scored numerous wins and, with three more rounds to come and not many points separating the top three teams, should move up the table.

Back to winter Monday 11 April 2016

Road Relay 2016

After the spring-like weather in Cardiff on Saturday, winter returned for the Welsh Road Relay championships held in Bargoed's Parc Cwm Darran yesterday, 10th April.

Despite a bitterly cold, strong and gusting wind that faced the runners for half the lap and made running into it very challenging, Cardiff teams ended the day with two sets of team gold medals, one of silver and one of bronze.

Better late than never Monday 11 April 2016

Although Cardiff AAC has a very talented group of young athletes, the older ones can win medals too.

After a delay in compiling the results, the Cardiff Master Women 45 ladies' team has been awarded the gold medals at the Welsh Cross Country Championships, held in Swansea on 27th February.

Congratulations to Helen John, Cerys Ash and Jen Stone.

Run Jump Throw a success Sunday 10 April 2016

RJT 2016

The weather was kind, with sunshine and a light wind, the athletes enjoyed it and the organisation was good.

The first edition of the Run Jump Throw competition for under 15 athletes was held yesterday at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium and was a welcome first of the season event.

Time to pay Thursday 7 April 2016

The bad news is that Welsh Athletics registration fees were due on 1st April and, unless they are paid, athletes will not be able to compete. UKA Athletics has made it a condition that all athletes in the UK must be registered in order to compete so, with the summer season upon us, this needs to be done straight away.
