Panthers running in style!

By GEM Community Correspondent in Athletics

In February 2016, Pencoed Panthers, a running group, was formed by a group of local women who wanted to support each other in their running journey.

In February 2017, we became a fully affiliated running club. We have nearly 100 members already. We cater for all abilities and retain the ethos of being a friendly, sociable and supportive club while encouraging the competitive side of our members.

We range from a walking group to a 0-5k group for the total beginner to training runs for those of you running in marathons.

We have been lucky enough to gain the sponsorship of a local nail salon, The Art of Nails, who also stock our kit locally.

The owner, Nic Symmonds, is a member of the running club and about to run the Virgin London Marathon to raise funds for St. John’s Ambulance.

The club held a launch party and fundraising event in Pencoed Social Club and raised over £700, helping Nic smash her fundraising total.

The support of the Pencoed Social Club has been well received by the Panthers and we are very grateful for their support.

We are also very grateful for our sponsors Harris Bassett Chartered accountants for their donation of £1,000 to help get us up and running.

The continued support of our local businesses and the social club will help support us on our journey. For further information see search Pencoed Panthers on Facebook or email
