Cardiff XChallenge 2019 Monday 14 October 2019

The Cardiff XChallenge took place last Saturday at Llandaff Fields, with big fields in the senior races, and increased numbers taking part in the younger age groups. Photo by Paul Stillman, shows Charlotte Arter leading the field going into the last lap. Jenny Nesbitt is just behind Charlotte. Jenny finished 2nd at end of race. Charlotte was a clear winner moving away from a quality field of senior women runners, and a good confidence boost for the rest of her XC season. Jenny Nesbitt also an excellent performance. Except for one section of mud, the course was in good condition. Cardiff ladies team must have won the team race, with great backup from, see below. 

XChallenge Men Monday 14 October 2019

In the senior men's XChallenge race Cardiff's Michael Ward finished 3rd, that followed a very good Leg in the ERRA's taking Cardiff team on 2nd Leg from 17th to 3rd place.

ERRA's 2019 Monday 7 October 2019

In the 1960's The Beatles were called the FAB 4, last week their last Album 30 years ago, sits on top of the Album charts.

Yesterday Cardiff Athletics Senior Women team, are our FAB 4 in winning the English RRA's Championships at Sutton Park, Birmingham. They won relay by 1min 58secs from 2nd place team. Getting team running order in relay races is important, the ladies got their running order spot on. A good start with only 4 runners in team is vital. Jennifer Nesbitt on Leg 1 (A), came home in 2nd place. Every leg had 10 fastest times shown. On leg 2 (B), Charlotte Arter home 1st running the fastest time of day. On Leg 3 (C), Lucy Marland came home 1st in second faster leg time. On Leg 4 (D), Clara Evans came home 1st with the fastest leg time. In photo you can see happy faces, despite they did not receive winninh team medals, yet Charlotte had the fastest time medal? Charlotte was not happy about that. See Ladies times, and senior men's team report below.       

ERRA RR's Saturday 5 October 2019

On Sunday 6th October, England National Road Relays take place in Birmingham at Sutton Park. Cardiff Athletics field a team of 6 runners in the senior mens race, and a team of 4 in the  Senior Womens race.

All legs are short distances. The men are fielding a solid team, and could finish in the top ten places (or better) of usually over 70 teams.

Our Women's team is packed with talented and experienced runners, if all run well on Sunday they should secure a podium place at finish. Photo of our winning British 10km Championships, with Lucy Marland  our 4th team member. We'll have a photo of all our team runners at end of both races.  See teams below.

BAL Friday 9 August 2019

BAL logo

Last Saturday match 4 of our Premier League mens team was held in Birmingham. Our team finished last in match, and 8th in final league position. The team had the lowest team points after 4 matches. Now the season is over, the club needs to reflect on reasons why we were relegated. The BAL team is weak in a number of positions that in short term, recruitment via higher claim athletes will help, in longer term, development of our younger athletes in team, together with recruitment of coaches, particulary in technical events. Clashes with other events did not help our BAL team. Many BAL athletes were selected for competitions abroad, or events in UK that clashed with BAL dates. In Birmingham, our team had no athletes in 6 events, and 3 events with no B athletes. Congratulations to all athletes who turned out for our BAL team during the 2019 season.    

YDL 4 Tuesday 30 July 2019

Last Sunday the 4th Youth Development meeting took place at Yate for upper age groups (17/20). The teem was weaken by absentees due to holidays etc. A shooting meeting was taking place near track that cause sprinters to fault start. Although they were allowed to start again, the team points were not taken into account for the match. A club protest has been made as the fault start was not the athletes fault. Many athletes covered a number of events to help team match points.

Cardiff Throws 6 Thursday 4 July 2019

Arrived at stadium 6.45pm for our club's monthly meeting on Tuesday evening. Academy was well under way, noticed football coaches were on grass with balls etc. Carried on walking to throwing area at back of stadium. Was surprised by number of athletes, coaches and officials and WA's staff present, lovelly weather and it's an invitation on line only event. T&F is my first interest, closely followed by XC and Road. Immediately got involved in discussion with Adrian Palmer who was observing the performances. One important point he made was that the club should take interest in these events, can see a number of reasons why this should happen. A number of pb performances were achieved. Brett Morse threw 55.48m, good practce for BAL match on Saturday. See Cardiff's throwers results below.   

Cardiff Athletics T&F Teams Monday 1 July 2019

Our YDL team U15/U13 had a tough match finishing 4th of 6 teams. Cardiff team finished 4th after 3 matches. Results  showed we lost points due to lack of officials, and was weak in field events. On the track, team scored more points than the other teams. A new club record was broken by the girls in the 4x300 with 2.58.60 breaking the current record (2016) by 0.10 tenths of a second.
