Women take steps to raise cash for charity

WOMEN Running Penarth held its annual ‘All Soles’ Fun Run around Cosmeston Lakes on Sunday, October 20.
Despite the fact that parts of the course were still rather muddy following torrential rain, 33 ladies dressed in pink and braved the puddles to complete the challenging 5k route.
Luckily, the rain held off long enough for everyone to finish the run and their endeavours raised £150 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
The event has become a highlight of the club's calendar and takes place every autumn with proceeds from entry fees being donated to charity. Members of the club can often be seen running around Penarth in their distinctive blue vests but, since October is breast cancer awareness month, runners were invited to dress in pink just for the day. Several runners even donned tutus and fairy wings to add to the fun.
The event is open to non-members and this year seven members of the public took up the challenge and joined in.
The overall winner was Sian Evans who finished in a time of 26 minutes and 7 seconds.
