Nos Galan

For runners across South Wales and beyond, New Year’s Eve means just one thing… The WORLD famous Nos Galan Road Races!

Held around the streets of Mountain Ash, GTFM is counting down to the 2017 Nos Galan Road Races which promises to be the biggest and best yet!

As ever GTFM’s very own motoring guru, Driver’s seat presenter Ian Edwards, will be swapping his steering wheel for a pair of running shoes and has again secured a place in the Adult 5k Fun Run to raise money and awareness for Pontypridd Street Pastors and GTFM which itself is a registered charity.

This despite ALL the places for this year’s Nos Galan 5k Fun Run being filled just 5 (record breaking) days after race entry opened back on the 5thof September.

Ian will be the cornerstone for GTFM’s Countdown to this year’s Nos Galan Road Races. He grew up in Victoria Street (Miskin) in Mountain Ash and in those days the race literally passed the front door of his parent’s house, the catalyst for his continuing passionate support of the event.
Over the years Ian has interviewed many of those directly involved with Nos Glan including Ann Crimmings the Chair of the Nos Galan committee, commentator and 4 times Nos Galan winner James Thie, plus Mystery Runners; Lynford Christie (2009), Colin Jackson (2015) and from last year, Welsh Football Manager Chris Coleman.
Ian has also interviewed members of local running clubs, local runners and some not so local runners, before and after the event itself.
THE little MONDAY NIGHT SHOW presented by Ian Edwards on Monday evenings (except the 1st Monday of the month) from 7 to 8 pm will feature regular Nos Galan updates and at least one Nos Galan or running related guest on the following dates…
Monday 11th and 18th of December
PLUS GTFM’s very own Saturday sports show, The Season Ticket will also feature regular Nos Galan updates throughout December.
GTFM 107.9 “running with” the 2017 Nos Galan Road Races !!!
