The 2024 Trap Fun Run was another successful event.

A total of 190 participants enjoyed the warm, friendly atmosphere on a sunny day.

The event followed a long wet winter and spring, lifting everyone's spirits.

This year marked the 34th year for the Trap Show Charity Fun Run.

Participants ranged from dedicated athletes to those taking a more relaxed approach, all revelling in the day's camaraderie.

The run includes two primary races: The Open Race spanning 4.7 miles, featuring a challenging hill at the starting point, and the Junior and Walkers route spanning 2.8 miles with a mercifully easier terrain.

Although no records were shattered this year, high performances were seen from both young and seasoned athletes alike.

The Amman Valley Harriers had a particularly victorious day, with Rob Davies being the first to finish the Open Race in 25.56 minutes.

On the women's side, Jade Williams from Cardiff came in first in the Ladies Race, finishing at 28.48 minutes.

Wendy Price, the previous year's winner and a member of Amman Valley Harriers, came in second.

In the Junior race, Joseph Rees Davies, a pupil from Ysgol Bro Dinefwr, secured his second consecutive win with a time of 18.55 minutes. Schoolmate Xander Davies came in second with 19.23 minutes.

Primary school pupil Emily Evans Williams from Penygroes made a mark in the Junior Girls Race, coming in with an impressive time of 21 minutes, with fellow primary school pupil Bella Jones just 20 seconds later.

Eric Davey of Llangennech, from Llanelli Striders, received a special prize for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship at the previous year's race.

Prizes were sponsored by Brecon Water, Gelli Plant, SJ Griffiths & Son and Morgan Marine, with finisher medals sponsored by Dyffryn Cennen Community Council.

The event specially acknowledged the help and support received, making the Trap Fun Run a unique experience.

Everyone present expressed their gratitude, marking the day as not only a sporting event but a true community gathering.

Proceeds from this year's race are to be shared between Trap Agriculture Show and Cancer Research Wales.
