Members of staff, pupils, Old Breconians and some of our intrepid Christ College parents raced amongst the 17,000 plus competitors over the 13 miles through Cardiff yesterday.
One such competitor was Old Breconian, Isabel Thomas. Isabel left Christ College in 2013 after studying her A Levels at the school. She ran to raise money for the Welsh Air Ambulance charity. Although many others would have chosen such a worthy charity to support, Isabel’s reasons were much closer to home. Isabel’s sister, Frances, a current pupil in the Upper Sixth, suffered serious head injuries in a riding accident at the end of August. Frances is making good progress but if it hadn’t been for the Welsh Air Ambulance then there is little doubt that the outcome could have been unthinkable. Isabel commented after completing the race, “I did it! Cardiff Half Marathon complete! And 5 weeks after her accident, Frances was able to come and cheer me on, which was the best! Thank you so, so much to everyone who has donated, I’ve raised a whopping £1,409! This is enough to fund another Air Ambulance mission and hopefully save someone’s life.”
Some of the staff involved were Head of Humanities, Barney Goodrich, with a time of 1hr 26 minutes; John Johnson, Head of Creative Arts, with a time of 2hrs 16; Mark Blatt from Donaldson’s House with a time of 1hr 54; pupils Julia Copp in 2hr 5 and Kate Griffin in 1hr 47. Member of Merthyr Running Club and Christ College parent, Mrs Ceri East, managed a time of 2hrs 1. With many other Old Breconians and members of the Christ College fold taking part then there will be many worthy causes benefitting from their efforts.
