Poblpack vs Wolfpack

by solas

This Summer, 9th – 10th June, a team of Pobl employees will take on the UK’s longest point to point non-stop relay foot run from Twickenham to Cardiff… The Wolfpack run!

The route will take them along rivers and canals, through forests and towns, across fields and over bridges including the spectacular Severn Crossing.

The terrain varies from tarmac to mud, gravel to long grass, and if that wasn’t enough, runners have to navigate their way through 23 checkpoints before running into Cardiff Central, collectively breaking checkpoint 24 as a team, AKA the finish line.

 Poblpack Running Team

  • Charlotte Waite (Solas)
  • Jon Burgess (Solas)
  • Naomi Dhillon (Solas)
  • Craig Smith (Gwalia)
  • Tim Barker (Gwalia)
  • Andrew Taylor (Charter)
  • Paul Bevan (Reach)
  • Nicky Lewis (South Wales AC)
  • Kris Bekker (Student South Wales AC)
  •  Nick (Dyfrig House Resident)

Our brave (and slightly crazy) staff team will cover 160 miles taking an estimated 33hrs. “WHY?” I hear you ask… To raise money for their next adventure of course.

Support the team and donate whatever you can afford

Donate to their challenge HERE or text WOLF17 followed by the amount you wish to donate, to 70070.

You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10.

As an example, to donate £5, you would text the following to 70070: WOLF17 £5

All the money you donate goes to Solas, and your network provider does not charge you for the SMS you send to make the donation.

Fundraising from this event will fund the transport and kit necessary to equip clients taking part in the Fan Dance, 1st – 2nd July, as part of our #BackOnMyFeet campaign.
