Trust launch Swans Family Fun Run
Are your shirt buttons still feeling the strain after overindulging on turkey and all the trimmings this Christmas? Did you promise yourself that 2016 would be the year that you would get into shape but you’re lacking a goal to work towards? If so sign up to the Swans Family Fun Run and get you and your family on the road to a healthy lifestyle.
Taking place on 28th March, the event will include three different distances for all ages and abilities (a 1k, 5k and timed 10k), and will see participants cross the finish line after running through the Liberty.
In addition to all runners receiving a commemorative medal on completion, the fastest male and female running the 10k will bag themselves a signed Swans shirt.
With the money raised going towards the Trust, the event will help Swansea City AFC’s official charity to continue to deliver health, education and youth engagement projects aiming to improve the lives of people within our local communities.
“Swans Community Trust are delighted to be holding our first 10k at the Liberty Stadium this Easter,” said the Trust’s Fundraising Officer, Charlotte Rogers. “The event will be a fun filled affair for the whole family, with 5k and 1k races for our younger runners too.
“The Trust aims to encourage all Swans supporters and communities in South West Wales to live healthier and more active lifestyles, so if you’re up for the challenge and you’re looking for a fun family day out over the Easter holidays, come along,” she continued.
Organised by the Swans Community Trust and running event experts, RunSwansea, the event will be held on Easter Monday at the Liberty Stadium and invites families to get involved to help us promote healthy living and raise money for the Swans’ official charity in the process. The event will also see the Trust partner with DW Harris, Princes Gate and St. John Ambulance as event sponsors.
"David W Harris & Co provide sponsorship to sporting clubs and associations across South Wales,” said Neil Startup, DW Harris’ Practice Manager.
“The Swansea fun run is a natural fit for DW Harris and we are proud and delighted to be a sponsor. Good luck to all runners!"
