Former world champion athlete Colin Jackson was delighted at the success of the Sanlam Go Dad Run 5K in Llangefni yesterday.

Almost 100 men and boys started at the Town Hall and ran around the streets of the town to raise awareness of and funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

First home was one of the top young runners in Wales, 12 year old Osian Perrin, and he was followed by Jason Thomas and Daniel Jones, all of whom won TIMEX Ironman watches as well as receiving their Sanlam Blue Y’fronts, medal, PUMA T-shirts and Big Yellow Sports Goodies Bags.

The pilot event was staged in Llangefni in 2013 and this year there are also events in Worcester, Warrington, Bristol, London and Cardiff.

Colin, who was in Llangefni this weekend said:

” I am really happy at how the run went and would especially like to contratulate Osian who is a young man I suspect we shall hear a lot more about in the future. I’d like to thank all the men and boys who took part, the volunteers who ensured that the day went smoothly and also Menter Mon who once again did such a great job of organising our Sanlam Go Dad Run”
