Yet another successful Trap Run

Yet another successful Trap Run

THE sun shone brightly for the 31st annual Trap Show Charity Fun Run which took place on Sunday (May 13).

Ospreys fullback Dan Evans sounded the hooter to start the 4.7 mile Open Race and the 2.8 mile race for juniors and walkers.

260 participants from near and far of all ages and athletic ability took part in the races.

The organisers said that it was an enjoyable experience whilst helping to raise funds for Cancer Research Wales and the Trap Show. In attendance were many familiar faces along with many new faces and whilst no records were broken as was the case for Dewi Griffiths last year, it was nevertheless a great race with strong performances.

The first to cross the finish line in the Open Race was Rob Davies of Aman Valley Harriers in a time of 26 minutes and 42 seconds. It has been a successful week for Rob as he also won the 5K Carmarthen Mayor’s Race.

The first lady home was Wendy Price of Llandovery with a time of 31 minutes and 28 seconds. It was a win made even sweeter when she learned that her son Scott had taken the honours in the Junior Race  (17 minutes and 23 seconds).

Clara James of Betws, a previous prize winner at the Trap Run, took the title in the Junior Girls Race.

The event has become very popular with walkers, with some pushing their little ones in buggies and others walking with their dogs, but regardless of the their pace, it was all about enjoying the camaraderie and friendship that is always so evident each year.

There was a generous array of prizes once again thanks to the kind sponsorship from Brecon Water, Gelli Plant, SJ Griffiths & Son, Morgan Marine, Hughes Decorators Glanamman as well as medals from Dyffryn Cennen Community Council, which all helps to attract a strong attendance.

It was another successful day blessed by fine weather, a great attendance and aided in no small part by the mammoth effort of our hardworking stewards and marshals.
