Natasha Kirk, MPCT HQ star is running the Cardiff Half Marathon

The stage is set for a record field of 27,500 runners to create history at the 2019 Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon this weekend.  Elite athletes from all corners of the globe will battle it out over the iconic 13.1 mile course before runners of all abilities take on their own personal challenges.

Female runners are expected to make up the majority of participants for the first time in the event’s 16 year history, and to celebrate, inspiring women have been sharing their stories as part of the #WhyWeRun campaign.

There will be one particular female runner we are supporting and hope you will too via her Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/natasha-kirk7 our very own Natasha Kirk aka Kirky.

She is doing it in aid of the Motivation & Learning Trust (MLT). Please show massive amounts of support to Tash and all donations to her Just Giving fundraiser really will make a difference to the Learners at any one of our 28 colleges‍. You will also feel really good about yourself.

For more information about our charity click here  https://motivationandlearningtrust.org/  and once again, the Just Giving page for Tash and her Cardiff Half Marathon is here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/natasha-kirk7

Good luck to all runners but especially our Tash!
