Competing for Cardiff Met

Cardiff Met AC attracts international performers from across the country and offers the chance for Cardiff Met Athletes to compete on their doorstep with the Grand Prix Series based in the National Indoor Athletics Centre (NIAC).  With no 1st or 2nd team structure, Cardiff Met AC offers all members the opportunity to travel and compete at all levels of competition (i.e. RAF Invitational in Sheffield), and in doing so, the opportunity to achieve your personal goals.  Additionally, if it’s a level of competition you’re seeking, a large selected team of athletes will perform against world class talent on show at the BUCS Championships, the Celtic Cup (Cardiff Met v Wales v Scotland v Ireland), and the Inter-Varsity Challenge.

Cardiff Met AC have a strong tradition of success at major university championships (BUCS Championships Indoors and Outdoors), with many of the medallists going on to compete for their respective country.
