Clubs across Wales are continuing to inspire activity and engagement with members, with the easing of travel restrictions this week and anticipation of the further easing of restrictions in the coming weeks, the future is certainly looking up for athletics and running clubs moving forward.
This week as part of the #SupportYourClub campaign, we are featuring the exploits of Penyffordd Run Club.
The club have been holding Virtual C-19 Relay Races, which have been great fun for members and a way to get a sense of wider club involvement during this time. These are organised by Charlotte Harvey who is the clubs chief Run Leader. The events have consisted of a different member of each team running each day for 2 weeks. They run as far as they can for 19 minutes, the number of miles run converts to points. The team with the most miles at the end of the 2 weeks wins. Extra points are up for grabs for those running in fancy dress which has certainly bought a little extra colour to the village!!
