Run Wales launches #WhyIRun campaign

Run Wales are excited to announce the launch of the #WhyIRun campaign!

Here at Run Wales, we support people and groups to run, walk and jog their way to a more active lifestyle and we love hearing your reasons for running! The #WhyIRun campaign sets out to show how running can be for everyone and can improve lives. We want to hear what inspires you to run now, and what encouraged you to run for the first time!

Last weekend, we were proud to support the Big Cardiff Social Run, which took place at Grange Pavilion and saw many of Cardiff's social running groups come together to participate in a 10km taper run ahead of Sunday's Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon.

As part of the launch for our #WhyIRun campaign, we went along to the Big Cardiff Social Run to find out some of the reasons that individuals and groups love running. We had some great responses, and you can view a montage of #WhyIRun reasons here.

This weekend, we'll be at the Cardiff Half Marathon encouraging runners and spectators to share their stories of #WhyIRun. We'll be located at the City Hall Lawns at the Cardiff Half Marathon Event Village on Saturday and Sunday, so come on down and say hello!
