Mayors Virtual London Marathon

Written by on 29th September 2021

On Sunday 3rd October, Pontypridd Town Mayor, Cllr Carl Thomas will be running the official virtual London Marathon, which consists of 2 laps around Pontypridd, raising some much need funds for his nominated charities; Velindre Cancer Centre, Pontypridd Foodbank, and Help for Heroes.
With the ongoing limitations of Town Council events that cannot be held, opportunities to raise money for the Mayor’s charities have been restricted to date.
The Mayor said, “Charities have also been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, so running my first ever marathon is one of a few ways I’m hoping that the fantastic people in the communities of Pontypridd will help and donate to these worthy causes.”
The marathon run will begin at 10:30am on the village green in Hawthorn, with the route for the Mayor taking in all wards that the Town Council represents over 2 laps of Pontypridd to cover the 26.2 miles marathon distance. Further details of the route will be published closer to the date so members of the public can support if they wish.
