A group of runners stand outside the Senedd in Cardiff holding the Running Out of Time relay baton.

With the Tree Council, Green Squirrel and The Green Runners.

Running Out of Time has now reached the land of dragons – Wales! In this episode of the Carbon Copy Podcast, we catch-up with the baton as it is taken from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff, via the Dragon’s Back in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park. We chat to Green Runners Nina and Martin, following their epic 46km run through beautiful Welsh landscapes. Also in this episode, we hear from Richard Pollard, Head of the Schools programme at the Tree Council, who welcomed the relay to an event at St. Fagan’s Museum in Cardiff; and from Becca Clark, co-founder of Green Squirrel, the Cardiff-based social enterprise where the baton ended its day in Cardiff.  

Listen to hear the inspiring stories behind these projects. 

“The job I do is fantastic… Every day there’s something new. You get this honorable opportunity to meet children from all over the country who are just so passionate, and believe so strongly in the changes that they can make. It’s so lovely to see that happening over time.” – Richard Pollard, Tree Council
