academi Coed y Brenin – can you help?

Within two weeks of the launch the academi Coed y Brenin junior running group has seen a total of 37 youngsters between the age of 8 and 16 come and tackle the trails of Coed y Brenin. Around 25 of those runners have also joined the club, which will soon be applying for affiliation to Welsh Athletics.

Run. Coed y Brenin’s Matt Ward comments: “We are very pleased with the reaction to the academi so far. It is great to see youngsters traveling long distances to get involved, and the first two weeks have been great! The leaders have been excellent and I think the young runners have all learned something new in these first two weeks.”

The academi meets every Saturday at 10.30am at the Coed y Brenin visitor centre and sessions run for 90 mins until 12pm.

“Any junior club relies on volunteers, generally parents of those children taking part, to get involved and offer their time to help make that club happen.” Matt continues.

At the academi an experienced group of leaders has emerged to help facilitate the Saturday morning run sessions. However, as the year goes on the club will need additional assistants who can join those leaders on the sessions and look after the groups. So we are calling on any parents who have a reasonable level of fitness and can run with the groups to come forward to help out for 90 minutes or so on the occasional Saturday.

“These assistants won’t need to come every week either as we will be operating a rota system to ensure that we have at least three leaders each and 3-4 assistants. Any help will be gratefully received!”

Volunteers who wish to get involved can contact Matt via matt@runcoedybrenin.com or post on the Facebook page.
