2nd Annual Merthyr Town FC Minithon

Merthyr Town FC will host its annual fundraising Minithon on Sunday 23rd October from Rhydycar Leisure Centre at 1pm.

Players, supporters, families and friends will either run, walk or crawl the 5km route from Rhydycar to Abercanaid and back along the beautiful Taff Trail to raise funds for both the Football Club and its Academy structure.

Sponsorship forms for the event can be downloaded via the following link -

Last year's event saw over 60 people enjoying a Sunday on the Taff Trail which raised in excess of £2,000.00. Merthyr Town FC would like to exceed that this year.

Andrew Murphy will be defending his title as the Minithon 5k Race winner for 2010 but others will be pushing prams or walking the dog as part of their participation in the event.

All participants are invited back to Penydarren Park after the Minithon for refreshments in the Candac Suite plus a chance to see one of the Academy teams who rely on fundraising to keep them going.

The Under-14 team will play Newport YMCA at 2.30pm.

It's going to be a great day on Sunday, see you at Rhydycar.
