Community Trust team completes Swansea Half Marathon
The Swans Community Trust upped the pace yesterday as a dedicated team of runners completed the JCP Swansea Half Marathon in aid of the Club’s charity.
The group runners, made up of Club and Community Trust staff, as well as fans, put their best foot forward to run the 13.1 mile course, with each pledging to raise £100.
Now in its third year, the race attracted 8,000 runners with the Community Trust was named as the event’s Official Community Charity.
The money raised will go towards helping Swansea City AFC’s official charity to continue to deliver its range of health, education and youth engagement projects, all aiming to improve the lives of people within our local communities.
Hannah Eames, Swansea’s Marketing Manager who ran it with her department, said: “On behalf of the Club, I’d like to thank all the runners who completed the marathon in aid of the Community Trust. It was a great achievement and I’m incredibly proud of everyone who ran it with us.”
Wayne Walkley, who ran on behalf of the Community Trust, added: “Well I did it. I feel a real sense of achievement and felt quite proud and emotional crossing the finish line knowing that I’ve raised money for such a worthwhile cause. It makes you feel all the hard work has paid off.”
