From couch potatoes to fit tomatoes!… We’re running the Cardiff 10K for Spectacle Theatre
Though our Director Steve will run 10K as a ‘warm up,’ for Training Coordinator Katie, Marketing and Admin Officer Becci and Social Media and Content Writer Mari (that’s me!) a 10K is no walk in the park!
We’ve all been training tirelessly to rise to the challenge and take on the Cardiff 10K on September 3rd, in order to raise as much money as possible for our current nominated charity, Spectacle Theatre.
Spectacle Theatre work with people of all ages who face multiple disadvantages and a combination of severe social harms such as isolation, substance misuse and mental illness. Through partnership working, they deliver an innovative and specialist participatory bi-lingual theatre service locally, nationally and internationally.
Katie and Becci have been taking part in Cardiff Park Runs and I have been training by running along the sea front in Swansea – by now, we’ve all managed to reach 5K, and Becci has shot even further with her long legs! The race has to be complete in under 2 hours (at which point a bus of shame comes to collect all stragglers!) We’re all confident that we’ll get there, but we’re also nervous and feeling the pressure… If you’d like to donate, or read more about any of us, take a look at our fundraising page on BT My Donate.
