Female footballers from Kilgetty took their pre-season training to another level last week, for a worthy cause, taking on the Pretty Muddy - Cancer Research Race For Life.
Kilgetty AFC Women took part in the fundraising challenge held in Swansea on Saturday, July 29.
Ten players travelled to Swansea for the weekend, where they climbed, crawled and slid their way around the ‘Pretty Muddy’ obstacle course.
After intensive pre-season fitness training already, the players were ready to face The Pretty Muddy 5k race, which is just over 3 miles, taking the runners on a scenic route through the popular Singleton Park.
The route has a mixed terrain, scattered with obstacles, creating an exciting, adrenaline-fuelled and action packed event with a brilliant atmosphere, they had great fun!
“We wanted to do something fun as a group, so we thought why not do something fun and raise some much needed funds whilst at it!” said Kilgetty AFC Women's player, Maisie Sherratt.
“Super proud of the girls and the effort everyone put into it, incredible show of commitment and determination from the Kilgetty AFC Women.”
The team smashed their fundraising target of £1,200, raising £1,410 so far via sponsorship, with more donations still coming in, for life-saving treatment via Cancer Research.
Kilgetty AFC Women’s Coach Matthew Davies said: “Really proud of our team for raising so much money for such an important cause. Well done to you all!”
Thanks are expressed to all who sponsored the team.
