Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run

By | Uncategorized

 

 

10th May 2018!

 

The 2nd Annual Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series & Fun Run got off to a good start with record numbers on Thursday 10th May. The first series took place in 2017 with 5k numbers totalling 340 for the whole series and 120 for the May event. The organisers were expecting the 5k numbers to increase to 150 for the first event in May with an aim of over 400 for the whole series. However on Thursday 10th May the numbers soared to 193 in the 5k event and increased from 25 to 35 for the kids Fun Run. With the sun shining out of blues skies it was evident it was going to be a great event!

 

The 5k series includes 3 events the next two are on the 14th June and 12th July. For each 5k event there are trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed runners in the Junior (11 to 15 years of age), Female and Male categories and on the last event the overall winner for each category is announced. There is also a trophy for the winner of the 1k and 2.5k Fun Run for the children 10 years of age and under.

 

The aim of the Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run is to being the running community of Swansea together, clubs and fun runners, to take part in an achievable distance under race conditions. Participants can aim to improve their time over the 3 events. During the events 360 also put on activities for the children to enjoy on the beach while their parents can take part in the 5k. There is also entertainment from Matt Cook during the evening. Come down on the 14th June and/or 12th July from 5pm for the kids fun run and 6pm for the 5k events.

 

HUGE Thanks to all participants, volunteers from PPRC, videographer – Paul and Carol Jenning, photographer – Jo Ashburner, 360 staff and our sponsors Persimmon Homes, Active Leisure, Verdis, Gemeg, Home from Home & Falck as well as ND John Wines providing the wine for the whole series. We are also hoping to raise over £3000 for the Paul Popham Fund to support kidney patients to compete in the transplant games.

Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run 2017 Round Up

SwanseaBay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run 2017!

The Paul Popham Running Club held the first Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series this Summer hosted by 360 Water and Beach Sports. The series took place on the 9th May, 13th June and 11th July with a 5k for 11years of age up and a Fun Run for Children from 10 years and under.  The series was very fortunate to have had 2 out of 3 dates blessed with sunshine, with the third and final date swamped with rain – but that did not stop play even the children turned up to take part in their final fun run!

The series hosted and supported by 360 Water and Beach Sports was a great success, with volunteers from the Paul Popham Running to help organize, set-up, administer and Marshall the event it could not go wrong. (The Marshalls were renamed Martians by the clubs very own Mario Moruzzi)

The 5k course took the athletes along the Swansea Bay seafront up to Swansea’s proud SA1 and measured by the Welsh Athletics was also timed by Welsh Athletics Officials on all three evenings, enabling winners in the 11 to 15 years of age, Female and Male categories to be announced as well as overall winners of the series in each category.

All three evenings started at 5pm with the Children’s 2.5km fun run and with the 5k kick starting at 7pm. Prizes were available for the 5k for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place categories, all 9 winners received a trophy and 360 Water and Beach Sports donated a voucher voucher for all winners. The Male and Female category winners also received a bottle of wine donated by 360 and Elizabeth Parker. Every child in the fun run received a bag of sweets and a certificate of completion.

The aim for the Paul Popham Running Club was to bring the 5k Series and fun run back to Swansea Seafront, to bringing local clubs together to compete alongside one other and encourage anyone who runs to enjoy the experience. All proceeds from the series were donated to the Paul Popham Fund, which supports kidney patients in Wales to lead a better quality of life. This year the series raised just over £500 for the charity with the aim of tripling that in 2018! Funds were raised from ticket sales, corporate support from Gladiator Insurance and Verdi’s Cafe and from a raffle organized by Elizabeth Parker.

2018 Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series will be back – fitter and stronger – with feedback from all volunteers and entrants on the night the Paul Popham Running Club and 360 can not wait to get started on plans for 2018!
