Great efforts from BAC runners at the Cardiff Half

chmWell done to all those who ran in the Cardiff Half this weekend. There was a great set of results from our Senior athletes (head over to the Senior results page for more details).

Congratulations also to the Junior BAC runners who ran on the Saturday at the Festival of Running event – much fun was had by all by all accounts.

For all those who missed out on the weekend’s run remember that there is another opportunity to run the course at next years World Half Marathon Championship on Easter Saturday.

Merthyr Mawr Pudding Run – 13th December

Hi there all,
If you didn’t already know, Brackla Harriers are hosting the Merthyr Mawr Pudding Run on the 13th December at 10am.
We have been offered an opportunity to enter 10 runners earlier than the main entry group – which is a great thing to have as many of you will know that the race fills up very quickly.
Brackla will send us 10 individual (BAC club member only) codes / links which will allow one runner to enter the race (normal costs apply) from the 1st October to the 5th October. The codes will be provided before the 1st of October.
Normal entries will open on the 7th October, if any additional members would like to enter.
If you would like one of these codes then please email me and I’ll add you to the list for one. First 10 requests get the codes. Again – I remind you – these codes are for BAC members only.


We are looking for some help with our “IT”

The club is looking for some PC support…

We have just obtained a laptop to help us with the management of the junior athletes. We need to register attendance at training sessions and also ideally have a way of logging simply any race or meet they attend as a BAC athlete. The existing paper based “system” isnt working!

The “solution” needs to be
– on the PC (and not web based as we do not want to be dependent on internet connectivity)
– simple to use so that any coach or parent taking registration can go to the athlete details and “tick” attendance (and log any event the child tells us about)
– ideally based on freeware – but if the solution is out there in a simple to use package then we’d be willing to look at buying it if it was appropriate

It could be a as easy as a spreadsheet with multiple sheets – but if someone has Access / other DB skill to set something up – please step forward – your club needs you!

The PC has Win 10 by the way…. Contact Gareth Hardman​ for details if you have time to offer
