Meet the Run Wales Volunteer of the Year finalists for 2022

Over the past three weeks, we have had the pleasure of introducing you to each of our finalists for the Run Wales Volunteer of the Year Award for 2022. The winner will be announced this weekend at the Welsh Athletics Annual Awards at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.

We are indebted to all the volunteers who give their time to make our running groups so amazing, whether that is supporting other members, or behind the scenes organising activities to keep things fun, challenging and safe. Thank you to everyone who took time to nominate a volunteer from their group – we received fantastic nominations for many inspiring volunteers, but we are delighted to share the videos below, supporting our three finalists: Paula, Geraint and Myfanwy. Congratulations and pwb lwc!

Paula Jones
Porth Eirias Runners

“Ever since the first day she joined the group in the early days of Porth Eirias Runners, she has been amazingly passionate to make it successful and that every person is welcome to the group regardless of ability.”

Geraint Roberts
Môn Milers

“Geraint is selfless in his approach to training or running events. Always encouraging, and staying with individuals when the going gets hard. Young or old, faster or slower he will always sacrifice his own pace to stay with others. “

Myfanwy Thomas
She Runs: Cardiff

“Myf is a founding member of She Runs: Cardiff and was instrumental in us becoming a Clwb Run Wales partner. Myf single handed set up our website, is key member of our social media team and also, incredibly importantly, has organised our twice yearly charity relay running events these last three years.”
