Slideshow: Cardiff Cross Challenge runs through Bute Park

Hundreds of runners braved torrential downpours to take part in the 15th annual Cardiff Cross Challenge on 16 Jan.

About 1,200 people descended on Blackweir Fields for the McCain Cardiff Cross Challenge, one of the most prestigious cross country events in the UK.

European junior champion Charlotte Purdue won the Senior Ladies event and Frank Tickner was victorious in the men’s race.

Primary schools across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan took part and despite the wet weather, the race’s assistant director Alex Donald declared the day a success.

He said: “It was particularly wet – especially for the spectators, but it was a good day nonetheless.”

Cardiff is the third fixture in the 2010/2011 McCain Cross Challenge series, which also includes races in Liverpool, Birmingham and Antrim in Northern Ireland.
