On Friday 7th September, over 170 women took to the promenade in Llandudno for the annual Fizzy Friday 5K Fun Run, raising money for the Network She Foundation, to support women and girls in sport.

Participants gathered at The Imperial Hotel for their first fizz stop before making their way over to the start line on the promenade. Dave Paveley, from North Wales Honda and Jade Paveley Motorsport, set the women off on their way to their next fizz stop at the Llandudno Bay Hotel. All participants then jogged, ran and walked back along the prom to the Kings Head Pub, before returning to the sea front for their forth fizz stop at the St. Georges Hotel and then racing to the finish line outside The Imperial Hotel.

Participants could be seen along the promenade laughing and enjoying every moment of the event, and celebrating as they crossed the finish line! They had travelled from across North Wales to take part in Friday’s event and some were from as far away as Sheffield and Nottingham!

The ladies behind the Fizzy Friday 5K Fun Run are Ruth Lloyd Williams and Melanie Lawton from Network She and Caroline Roberts from Bella the Prosecco Van, together they’ve been planning and organising this event since the beginning of the year. We caught up with Ruth Lloyd Williams to find out how this year’s event compared to last year…

“We’ve loved watching everyone’s reaction as they’ve crossed the finish line. This year’s event has seen more women enter and it’s been great to see women take part for the second year running, alongside some new faces too! We’ve also loved the fitness progress some participants have made since last year’s event too. One woman walked the route last year, this year she jogged half and walked half and next year she’s set her target to jog the whole route! Which means we have to do it all over again in 2019!”

 Caroline Roberts also added, “We’d also like to say a massive thank you to each and every person who volunteered to marshal at this year’s event. Without you, the event wouldn’t be possible, not only from a health and safety point of view but also the support you gave to each participant running past too! 

Once everyone had crossed the finish line it didn’t stop there either, as participants and marshals made their way to the after party hosted by The Imperial Hotel, where they danced the night away!

Five Fizz stops and an after party where you can dance the night away in trainers, what more could you want! All that’s left to say is… roll on 2019!
