NYAW Manager runs inaugural Swansea ½ Marathon for NYOW

He's doing it again. NYAW Manager, Matthew Jones, has signed up to run the Swansea Half Marathon to raise money for the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and its development programme. Held on the 20th July, the race is just a couple of days before the start of the NYOW residency (so be gentle with him at registration!).

This is the 2nd time Matthew has run a half marathon in aid of the Orchestra and its members and he hopes to beat both his time of 2 hours (and a second) and if possible the amount he raised last time - a formidable £1500.

With 60 days to go until race day, Matthew has started his training and now wants to launch his fundraising page:
