Welsh Athletics hold the BMAF 1-mile road race championships in the centre of Cardiff
On Saturday the 4th October 2014 I witnessed Welsh Athletics promoting 1 Mile Road Races from the Civic Centre which incorporated the BMAF Championships. The idea of including 1 mile road races within the road race calendar was the idea of Mel James our cross country secretary.
Without reservation this was an excellent idea and I hope Welsh Athletics will be prepared to accommodate us in 2015.
In short the atmosphere of city centre racing over a fast course is unique. The crowds, the venue and the weather all helped to make this a very special day.
All the results are attached and I am anticipating significant interest once next year’s date is confirmed. I am also investigating the history of 1 mile records for masters and would hope to be in a position to publish them before next year’s race.
