Success at Atlantic College

Monday 22 March 2010

Cardiff AAC were well represented in the Atlantic College 10k yesterday, Sunday 21 March. The race begins in the college grounds, near to St Donats Castle and, with the weather warm and sunny, it felt like the first race of spring. Marathon man Richie Gardiner won comfortably in 31:10 after pushing on from the chasing group and running much of the race on his own.

Richie was pleased with how things went and saw his result as an indication that preparations for the London Marathon in April are going well. Next man home was team mate Carwyn Jones who was racing for the first time after a long injury lay-off.

An unusually clean shaven Matt Collins finished fifth, with track specialist James Thie suffering in 6th place. Ed Takata also represented the club, finishing inside the top 20.
