Aneurin Leisure Festive 5K
On Sunday 11th December, Aneurin Leisure hosted its first ever Festive 5K run in Ebbw Vale and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated and supported the event!
60 runners took part in the two lap circuit from Ebbw Vale Sports Centre across the bridge to the end of Pen Y Cwm School and back again.
13 year old Lloyd Sheppard was the fastest male, with a time of 17:49, which was an impressive personal best and Louise Evans was the fastest female, completing the course in 22:45. Each participant received a medal on completion of the course and Claire Gittings won a prize for the best fancy dress!
The event was a great success, with lots of positive feedback being received: -
