Seventeen runners left Colwyn Bay yesterday morning to run to Newport in south Wales. They are raising money for the For Luca Appeal. Click here to read how Barack Obama has even played a part in this amazing campaign for Luca, a young boy from Newport.

The twitter feed set up by the runners told me they were just getting through Croesyceiliog in Cwmbran. My plan was to get to the Greenhouse pub and grab a quick video as they headed out of the town towards Newport.

This bunch of super fit fundraisers were too quick for me and they had passed the pub before I could park. It was a bit of a scramble to get ahead of them and park safetly so I went to the petrol station on Malpas Road and ran back towards the town. Watch this video below of the runners taken at 10.45am today.
