Countdown is on to Carmarthen Mayor’s fun run races

Posted By RobertLloyd58

IT’S time to get the running shoes back on for the Carmarthen Mayor’s Fun Run Races on May Day Bank Holiday, Monday, May 6.

Online entries are now open and the whole family can get involved.

The races have been held in Carmarthen every year since 1982, apart from 2020 and 2021 when they were cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Race organiser Noelwyn Daniel, from Healthy Life Activities, said: “This will be the 41st running of the races and we are immensely proud that they remain a regular feature in the sporting and leisure calendar for Carmarthen.

“We are hoping for a bumper turnout in both the 5k and the fun run races.

“The 5k and fun run races for the juniors provide something for everyone, from the athletes looking to record personal bests, to the fun runners who enjoy dressing up in fancy dress and raising money for charity.

“We are keen to inject as much fun as possible into the event, encouraging people to take part in fancy dress and asking local sporting teams, organisations, businesses, pubs and clubs to consider entering teams.”

Mr Daniel added: “The beauty of the races is that they take place in the heart of the town centre in Carmarthen, affording great opportunities for spectators to cheer on the runners.

“We are encouraging businesses to dress up in the corporate colours and logos and earn themselves some free publicity by taking part. It’s a great team-building event for any business.”

The event has raised thousands of pounds for charity over the years, with many local groups and organisations benefiting.

For the serious runners, there will be electronic chip timing in operation for the 5k fun run.

The Mayor of Carmarthen, Cllr Wyn Thomas, will be on hand to start all the races and present medals and trophies to all runners.

The main 5K race starts at 10am, followed by staggered start times from 11am for the children’s races.

Volunteers will also be needed to marshal on the day.

Marshals are all asked to meet in St Peter’s Hall at 9am on race day.

Registration on the day will be at St Peter’s Civic Hall, Nott Square.

The race routes are the same as those used last year.
