Running group for tech scene set up in Cardiff

A social running group for those working in tech has been set up in Cardiff.

Techrunners Cardiff is being organised by Cardiff Start, Wales’s largest start-up community. The first run is scheduled for next Tuesday at Bute Park.

Various members of the Cardiff Start community suggested setting up the group based on the success of Techrunners London, which was founded in March.

The main aim of it is to get people out from behind from their laptops and tech and into some running shoes.

Neil Cocker, founder of Cardiff Start, said: “It’s a gentle enough for beginners to join us and an opportunity for more advanced runners to socialise and get some exercise.

“As we grow, we’ll possibly consider different groups for different abilities. But for now, we’re keen to just provide an opportunity for anyone in the startup scene in Cardiff to get to know each other better while getting fitter.”
