Countdown starts to 29th annual Mayor’s Fun Run

It will take place, as usual, on Easter Monday, which next year falls on April 5, 2010.

For those of you who like plenty of warning, there are now just over 20 weeks left to get into shape for the 5k fun run and a series of junior races.

“The race is one of the highlights of the year in Carmarthen,” Deputy Town Mayor Councillor Alan Speake said this week.

“I would urge everyone, young and old, to consider taking part and making the event a great fun occasion for Carmarthen town.”

Councillor Speake is chairing the Mayor’s Fun Run Steering Group in the run-up to race day.

He added: “The event is recognised as a great occasion in Carmarthen. So, if you want to get into shape over the winter months ready for the big race day, then now is the time to start.”
Runners are being encouraged to dress up in fancy dress and field pub and club teams.

The junior races cater for Years 2-10. The senior fun run has categories for males and females under 40 and 35 and veterans groups for older age groups.

Everyone who completes the course gets a medal.

Entry forms will be published in the Journal in the new year. The forms will also be published in the new year on the Journal’s website, and the Mayor’s Race website, Online registration for the run will also be available on the Runner’s World website, Race organiser Noelwyn Daniel said the race route which be the same as in previous years.

He added: “It is a tried and tested formula with the senior runners having three laps of the town centre circuit. Both the runners and the spectators like the fact that the whole event is staged very centrally in the middle of Carmarthen town centre.”

The 2009 races raised cash for four youth-orientated charities and organisations - £500 each for Dr Mz, Ty Ni, Ty Hapus and the ATC.
