Côr y Gleision members running the Cardiff Half Marathon


At the beginning of October a few members of Côr y Gleision completed the Cardiff Half Marathon. A few of the members who took part had previously run a half marathon but some of the members, including Côr y Gleision’s accompanist Rhiannon Pritchard, signed up for the ‘Alfie’s Angels’ series on BBC Wales where Gareth Thomas, former Wales and British Lions Captain trained a group of people who had never run a half marathon before.

The group managed to raise £4,500 for their different charities including Beating Bowel Cancer, Cancer Research UK, Ochre (promoting awareness of oesophageal cancer) a Muscular Dystrophy

Congratulations to everyone who took part.
