WJL Final 2016 22 August 2016

Champions again

Cardiff AAC once again showed that it is Wales' best junior club by winning the Welsh Under 15 League final in Newport yesterday.

Leading from early in the day, Cardiff's lead grew and grew to an ultimate margin of over 100 points over second placed Cardiff Archers; despite the pole vault being cancelled, in which Cardiff would have done well. In 2015 Cardiff won by 94 points.

Issie Tustin and Daniel John collected the well deserved trophy from Welsh Athletics President Lynette Harries who remarked how good it was to see such enthusiasm.

Ieuan Thomas

The Welsh 5k Road championships were held at Merthyr Mawr on Saturday 20th August, and, despite the poor conditions, Cardiff AAC scored a double victory, taking the team titles in both men's and women's races.

Ieuan Thomas took the individual senior men's title with Ciaran Lewis third (first under 20 man home) and James Hunt fourth (second under 20).

For the senior women, Camilla Barnes was 4th, Emily Brown 6th and Heddwyn Daniel 7th.

Alex Hains and Ava Hutchinson

Alex Hains and Ava Hutchinson will be getting married in Ireland on Saturday and Cardiff AAC wishes them every success and happiness in their future life together.

Now living in Leicestershire, Alex joined the club 15 years ago and has been a regular on the middle and long distance running scene. Ava represented her native Ireland in the marathon at the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as in the European Cross Country Championships the same year.


Treasurer needed

The club urgently needs someone to take over as treasurer from Steve Davies.

Steve has been an excellent treasurer for the past two years but has been forced reluctantly to step down because of pressure in his day job. 

If you are interested to help the club in this way (or can suggest someone who is) please contact chairman Bernie Plain (07976 368 543) as soon as possible. You can be assured of plenty of help in what is an important role.
