Cardiff athletes turned out in strength for the inter regional cross country championships held at Builth Wells on Saturday last,14th December.

Wearing their South Wales vests, Cardiff produced four individual race winners but pride of place must go to the under 13 girls where Annwen Gammon won, followed home by Jessica Wadey (2nd), Sofia Vella (3rd) and Kiara Frizelle (4th). The other individual winners were Andy Hunt (Masters men 35-39), Ffion Price (under 20 women) and Kate Seary (under 17 women).

Thanks to the Cardiff contributions, South Wales won the overall men's and women's team competition.

Other noteworthy performances were:

Nat Lane (Masters 35-39 - second);  Mike Ward (Under 20 men - second);  Ciaran Lewis (Under 17 men - second);  Jake Heyward (Under 15 boys - third);  Alfie Davies (Under 13 boys - fourth).

Suzanne Turvey (Senior women - sixth);  Rebecca Evans (Under 20 women - third);  Naomi Reid (Under 15 girls - fifth).
