Return of the Welsh XC Relay Championships – heading BAC way

XC-relaysWelsh Athletics have just announced that they will run the XC Relays event again this year – and handily for BAC’ers it will take place at Newbridge Fields in Bridgend.

To fully participate we will need teams for the u13’s up to Seniors – with teams consisting of 3 – 4 runners (depending on age group).  The courses are broadly speaking a reverse run of the Gwent League route, though they do not go across the river bridge this time.

The u11’s can get involved as well – with a 1500m XC Challenge event set up for all boys and girls to enter to start the days proceedings.

Athletes/parents – please let your coaches know if you/your child are keen to run so that they can include runners in a team.

This is likely to be an exciting afternoon’s running with the handover between athletes taking place in front of the BAC clubhouse. 

All the details are to be found on the Welsh Athletics website. Entries should be received by WA no later that Tuesday 17th November 2015 via the online facility.

There certainly been some hills run this weekend….


Congratulations to Andrew Tuckey who won the latest in the South Wales Winter Hill Series – this one up and down the Sugar Loaf (running himself into contention for the Drovers Leg of the WCR again methinks…)

Snowdonia Marathon

Also a hearty well done to Andrew Wicks, Nick Stocker and Dan Morgan who sprinted (really?) ran, walked, crawled around the lumpiness that is the Snowdonia Marathon on the weekend….

Gwent League – Bridgend u11’s top their Leagues

The Gwent League results for the weekends run at Newbridge Fields are out already…. and the Novice (u11) Boys and Girls top their Leagues! (see

Great performances across all age groups – well done all – you ALL contributed.

The sight of 24 u11 girls lining up on the start line was particularly heartening to see – and a real testimony to all the coaches and parents who got them there.


(Note that the u13 Boys Team position is missing from the u13 Teams page – the League have been informed and we hope to see this omission rectified ASAP – I work it out that they should be shown as 6th.)

The next event is at Cardiff on Sunday the 8th of November – lets see the mass hordes of BAC Juniors there as well!
