“The sun shone for us!  It was fantastic to see so many take part and enjoying themselves and raising money for such a good cause.  The amount of cheering and clapping for all the runners was impressive and it was an honour for me to reward the runners with their medals as they crossed the finish line”.

We are delighted to announce that Martyn Williams, former Pontypridd, Cardiff Blues, Wales, British & Irish Lions rugby legend will be officially starting the Run.

Councillor Steve Powderhill said “as Leader of Pontypridd Town Council and a former patient of Velindre I would like to say how thrilled we are to organise our 6th fun run in aid of Velindre Cancer Centre and to have one of the world’s greatest rugby stars our very own MARTYN WILLIAMS to start the run.  This is absolutely fantastic for Pontypridd, the Town Council and the charity and for Martyn to give up his time for such a worthy cause we know he holds so dearly, makes this a very special day indeed.  We hope all participants, supporters and volunteers have a great day raising the much needed funds for this very special place.
