In the men’s race, the lead was taken, and kept, by James Thie (Cardiff AAC) with club mate Nathaniel Robert Lane behind in second.

Just behind them in 7th was Frank Hardy (New Forest Runners) with Rory Heslop (Unattached) in 8th. Elio Lepore was up in 9th with Ben Moon (Unattached) in tow, whilst Glyn Sansom (San Domenico) was in 10th ahead of a large group.

Coming back towards the 4km mark, James had extended his lead over Nathaniel slightly, with Mark moving up to 3rd with Lian on his shoulder in 4th. Carlton, in 5th, was ahead of Frank, with Oliver behind in 7th ahead of Rory.

In the last 200m, Lian managed to get past Mark to take 3rd, whilst, behind them, Frank finished 5th, as Carlton fought off a late push by Oliver to keep 6th place. Rory finished two seconds behind Oliver to take 8th, as Ben and Jonty Davies (San Domenico) finished strongly to get new PBs in 9th and 10th respectively. Glyn took 11th place, ahead of Nick Dukes (Les Croupiers) who had fought his way through the pack after starting further behind to take 12th position. Elio took 13th ahead of Robert Jackson (Unattached) in 14th and Sam Haysom (Unattached) in 15th, having completed his first Cardiff parkrun.

In the women’s race, the early lead was taken by Stephanie Davies (
Pontypridd Roadents AC), with Wendy Owen (San Domenico) behind in second and Liz Ashton (Les Croupiers) third. Liz moved past Wendy just before the Blackweir bridge and then Stephanie shortly after in the Blackweir fields. Behind them were Maria Zubizarreta and Sarah McCarthy (both Les Croupiers) in 4th and 5th with Jilly Holroyd (Cardiff Triathletes) not far behind. Jennifer Hughes (Les Croupiers) was running alongside Angharad Rhys (Unattached) in 7th 8th at this point with Jennifer Corbett, 9th, (Unattached) a bit further behind.

Wendy managed to overtake Stephanie to move up to second during the field section. Unfortunately, Liz pulled up just before the halfway mark with an injury and didn’t record a finishing time. Wendy now had the lead, and led going back through the fields, but was reliably informed by her pacer, Alistair Wood (San Domenico), that Maria and Sarah were slowly catching up. Jilly was in fourth at this point, ahead of Angharad in fifth.

Wendy eventually managed to keep the lead until late into the 4th kilometre where Maria pulled ahead in the last 200m, dragging Sarah and Wendy behind her to finish 1, 2, 3 to the surprise of Derek at the finish line.  Jilly recorded a PB in 4th place, improving on her previous best by 13 seconds. Angharad finished 5th ahead of Stephanie in 6th.
