St David’s Day Run: A Run to Remember

On Sunday 16th September 2018, MPCT held it’s last ever St’ David’s Day Run after 18 years of the hugely successful event. The event was a re-scheduled one, with the “Beast from the East” forcing us to postpone the original race from March to September.

Despite the weather still not displaying its best, the rain managed to hold off during the races themselves, and over 1000 competitors crossed the Finish lines, receiving the “best ever” (according to several competitors) medal and t-shirt.

Muktaar Farhan, the winner of the main event, ran 10 kilometres in an impressive 35 minutes on the nail!

Below you will find the list of winners from the day, congratulations to all runners that took part and thank you for your support over the last 18 years.
