Nos Galan 2017

Well done if you took part in Nos Galan 2017!

Thousands of runners took to the streets of Mountain Ash on New Year’s Eve including our very own Ian Edwards (Pictured above)

GTFM’s very own motoring guru, Driver’s seat presenter Ian Edwards, swapped his steering wheel for a pair of running shoes after securing 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.

Ian was 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.

Well done Ian and everyone who took part in the event – here’s to the 2018 race!
