Senior men win

Wednesday 11 December 2013

With three finishers in the first ten, Cardiff's senior men took the team race honours at the third round Gwent Cross Country League at Bath University on Sunday last, 8th December. Andrew Hunt was placed second individual with British Masters champion James Thie sixth and Nat Lane eighth.

In the junior age groups, Jake Heyward won the under 15 boys' race by a wide margin and Rebecca Evans was second in the under 20 women's race.

In the senior women's race, Ffion Price could not match her winning form (she had won the first two races) and slipped to sixth.

Despite many athletes (and parents) struggling with illness, 46 junior athletes made the journey to Bath. The rain subsided and it turned into a crisp, sunny day, providing excellent running conditions. Tracey and Kay even managed to get the club tent up the right way round after discovering that it was inside out to start with!

The top peformers in each age group were:

Under 11 boys:  Matthew Register - 26th
Under 11 girls:  Emily Chirighin - 7th
Under 13 boys:  Alfie Davies - 8th
Under 13 girls:  Annwen Gammon - 4th
Under 15 boys:  Jake Heyward - 1st
Under 15 girls:  Angel Powell - 46th
Under 17 men:  Ciaran Lewis - 6th
Under 17 women:  Katharine Steggles - 14th
Under 20 men:  Matthew Edwards - 4th
Under 20 women:  Rebecca Evans - 2nd

Congratulations to everyone who ran on Sunday, especially those who improved on previous peformances as the fields were bigger than usual owing to the Avon & Somerset County championships being held within the event. Well done everyone.
