Fitness Fanatics of all ages are being urged to grab their trainers for Ynysybwl's inaugural fun run.

The Lady Windsor Runs, which will follow a route along the Taff Trail and around the former colliery site will take place on July 14th.

It marks the 25th Anniversary celebrations of the regeneration of the town following the mine's closure.

The Community Council are funding the event. which is being organised by runner Glyn Hicks. Mr Hicks has ran the Athens Marathon and the London Marathon twice.

"This will be an exciting day for adults and children and we hope to create a bit of a carnival atmosphere"

"Around 99% of runners will sign up on the day, so we have no idea how many will turn out"

It all starts at the pit memorial at 10.30am.

There will be a 2km run for under 11's, A 4km run for 11 to 16 years olds and a 5 mile run for adults.

 

Local Marathon Man Gwyn "Dougie" Lloyd will be the sweeper for the run. As we all know Dougie used his knowledge of working in the Lady Windsor to go in the world known race in Mid Wales "Man versus Horse" a practice I believe he learnt on Pit Bottom running against the Pit Ponies.

Thanks also the the Pontypridd Roadents for their support in the event.
